• September 5, 2018. Release 17.9.1. This release has the major new capability to compute J-integral values in the presence of complex residual strain-stress fields. Numerous other smaller improvements have been included. See Revision History for the complete list including updates to the manual.
  • March 2, 2018. Release 17.8.7. This release includes numerous small updates to handle models with a large number of nodes, elements, load (time) steps [ > 1 M].  Code to drive the CPardiso solver for MPI+threads execution on clusters has improved efficiency. Production-scale simulations have been completed at the Ohio Supercomputer Center on 64 nodes using 1792 cores.
  • December 23, 2017. Release 17.8.6. This is primarily a maintenance release to include fixes/tweaks and code reliability changes. The default script for MPI execution on Linux (file: warp3d_script_linux_hybrid) now includes commented commands to start execution across multiple compute nodes using a DAPL fabric). 
  • October 13, 2017. Release 17.8.5. Mid-year release that adds new elements (bar2, link2), new surfaces for rigid contact, user-defined initial stresses, periodic boundary conditions, crystal plasticity material model now works for MPI + threads version on Linux, limit on number of nodes removed, smaller memory footprint at start up and on each MPI rank, extensive source code updates to error checking and reliability improvements.
  • April 21, 2017. Release 17.8.0. This is the annual major release. See Revision History on the Downloads page for a quick overview of all new features. All capabilities in the code work on all three platforms Linux, Windows, MacOS. The source code on GitHub is updated frequently with changes between these twice yearly release packages. Be sure to scan the main README file and the README_... file for each platform to get the latest breaking news on changes.
