WARP3D is under continuing development as a research 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 several million nodes and elements. See Capabilities page for detailed list of features.
- See *new* Appendix K on Modeling Residual Strains-Stresses in WARP3D.
- See featured article about WARP3D software architecture first published in Intel's Parallel Universe magazine (Summer 2017).
- See article about wrap-up of Intel sponsored research at the Ohio Supercomputer Center focused on WARP3D.
Key features in 17.9.0: complete new implementation of domain (J) integrals to support complex modeling of residual strains-stresses via the initial-state framework. Extensive rewrite of Chapter 4 on Domain Integrals to include more background/theory and initial-state concepts. A new Appendix K summarizes the various capabilities to include and/or generate residual strains-stresses in models. See Revision History for complete list of all changes.
We distribute the source code, ready-to-run executables, example problem directories, User Guide and all other supporting files/documentation free of charge under the University of Illinois/NCSA license.
Note: WARP3D now requires processors with the AVX instruction set. These processors date from 2013-14 onward.

The WARP3D system is maintained on two web sites.
- 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.
- 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. The git configuration management system operated by GitHub is adopted for this activity.
