Complete User Manual (600+ pgs, PDF, 21 MB, 28 Mar 2019)
Document. (updated 28 Mar 2019) Run the suite of verification analyses included in the WARP3D distribution
Document. Using Cubit to produce a Patran-style neutral file (text) for a model and convert to a WARP3D input file. Also applicable for any software that produces a Patran-style neutral file (Patran, FEMAP, ...)
Document. (updated 12 Apr 2019). Build an ExodusII (.exo) file from a WARP3D (flat) model description file and flat files of nodal/element result. The very powerful and widely used (free) ParaView software reads .exo files for post-processing.
