WARP3D is under continuing development as a research and production quality code for the solution of large-scale, 3-D solid models subjected to static and dynamic loads. The capabilities of the code focus on fatigue & fracture analyses primarily in metals. WARP3D runs on laptops-to-supercomputers and can analyze models with millions of nodes and elements. See Capabilities page for detailed list of features.

The distribution includes: ready-to-run executables, extensive documentation and verification sets, workflows, all source code, build scripts.

18.1.6,7,8 are bug fix, cleanup releases. See additional comments under Brief Updates.

Key features in 18.1.5: Major updates to crack initiation/growth based on stress-modified critical strain (SMCS). New models for the critical plastic strain include various forms of dependence on the Lode angle in addition to stress triaxiality. Improved output options to track evolution of SMCS parameters including element states (flat) files of parameters for post-processing. Chapter 5 significantly updated to reflect new features. Elements may now also be deleted with direct user commands without need for a failure criterion. New verification tests included in the standard set.

The WARP3D system is maintained on two web sites:

  1. This site contains general information about the WARP3D project, capabilities and links to download documentation and compressed files for the entire system that contain: ready-to-run executables for Windows, Linux, Macs; all source code and build scripts; all documentation, example and verification suites.

  2. The code development and management site at GitHub. The default (master) branch is maintained with continuous updates to the source code, supporting build files and the history/tracking of all changes are available for download at this site.
