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.
Key features in 17.8.5: (1) user-defined initial (residual stresses), (2) general, 3D periodic boundary conditions and new elements
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.
Updated documentation on the Crystal Plasticity material model (June 9, 2017) PDF (1.8 MB)
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.
