Abstract: Solution capabilities for two- and three-dimensional nonlinear finite element analysis of concrete structures are presented. The concrete material is modeled including the triaxial nonlinear stress-strain behavior, tensile cracking, tension-stiffening, compression crushing and strain-softening. The results of various sample analyses are given to demonstrate the constitutive model and the solution strategies. These analyses include the response predictions of a test beam and of small scale models of two reactor vessels. (19 refs.)

Abstract: This paper presents the development of an efficient and numerically stable algorithm for the accurate solution of the free vibration problem arising in the analysis of undamped spinning systems. Closely related to the standard subspace iteration method, the procedure fully exploits the banded nature of the associated structural matrices and avoids complex algebra in all computations. A practical numerical example is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed algorithm. (16 refs.)

Bass, B. R. (Oak Ridge Natl Lab, Oak Ridge, TN, USA); Pugh, C. E.; Keeney-Walker, J.; Schwartz, C. W. Source: International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping, v 31, n 5, 1988, p 325-348

ISSN: 0308-0161 CODEN: PRVPAS

Abstract: A primary objecive of the crack-arrest studies being conducted by the Heavy-Section Steel Technology (HSST) program is to understand pressure vessel conditions that would initiate growth of an existing crack and conditions that would lead to arrest of a moving crack. In meeting this objective, the HSST program is generating crack-arrest data over an expanded temperature range through tests involving large cylinders, pressure vessels and wide-plate specimens. This paper describes the portion of those studies that relate to the installation of two viscoplastic constitutive models and several proposed fracture criteria into the ADINA finite element program.

Abstract: Stiffened panels are fundamental structural elements in modern warships. As part of a research program to improve Canadian warship design standards for air blast loading, a stiffened panel instrumented with pressure, acceleration, displacement and strain gages was subjected to an air blast wave from a surface explosion at the Defence Nuclear Agency's event code named MINOR SCALE. This paper presents a dynamic response analysis of the panel using the finite element computer program ADINA. The panel response and associated acceleration, displacement and strain are computed and compared in detail to experimental results. The response characteristics are also critically examined to determine the relationship of the applied loading to the structural response. (9 refs.)

Abstract: The final disposal of high-level radioactive waste in a salt dome affects the thermomechanical behavior of the surrounding rock salt due to the temperature rise caused by the heat generation of the radioactive waste. The near-field thermomechanical phenomena around several in situ temperature tests and a 300-m-deep conceptual borehole were studied numerically. Thermally induced closure of the boreholes and the strain-stress field distribution in the rock salt following the pressure load on the measuring probe surface and on the waste containers were determined. The calculations were performed with the commercial finite element program ADINA, taking into account the nonlinear and time-dependent behavior of the rock salt. The purpose of these investigations was a validation of the numerical methods, of the thermomechanical material parameters of rock salt, and of the model boundary conditions. (15 refs.)

Abstract: Analysis has been performed of a flat circular plate 150 mm diameter and 20 mm thick which is subjected to a severe thermal downshock on a 36 mm diameter zone at the centre of one surface. A semi-elliptical surface crack is positioned in the cooled zone. Calculations of temperature, stress and stress intensity factor have been made by two methods and the results compared. The first is a two dimensional axisymmetric finite element analysis using the ADINAT/ADINA programs. The second is based on a one dimensional approximation to the problem using the code STRIPE developed by the UKAEA. It is shown that at the centre line of the cooled zone, temperatures, stresses and maximum depth stress intensity factors for a small crack are in close agreement when calculated by the two methods. For a large crack the one dimensional approximation has overstimated stress intensity factors since it has not accounted for reducing stress in the plate surface away from the centre line.

Abstract: A stochastic finite element approach is discussed for the nonlinear random vibration analysis of framed systems with hysteretic supports. The solution is obtained by stochastic linearization which uses complex modes of vibration of the system. The method was applied to a piping system on yielding supports. The results in the form of probability distribution of the peak displacement were compared with limited simulation studies using the program ADINA. A model for the case of beams with hyteretic behavior is also presented and described in this paper. (11 refs.)

ISSN: 0195-0738 CODEN: JERTD2

Abstract: The results of the two and three-dimensional, nonlinear analyses of a caisson retained island in the Beaufort Sea are presented. A hyperbolic stress-strain relation for soils has been implemented in a general purpose finite element program, ADINA, to carry out the analysis. Based on the comparisons of the results, conclusions were drawn about whether a two-dimensional analysis can be safely used to replace a three-dimensional analysis.

Finite element analysis and fatigue evaluation of the threaded marine riser connector

Sato, T. (Nippon Kokan Kabushiki Kaisha, Kanagawa, Jpn); Sano, S.; Ishikawa, K.; Nakano, T. Source: Journal of Energy Resources Technology, Transactions of the ASME, v 110, n 2, Jun, 1988, p 85-92

ISSN: 0195-0738 CODEN: JERTD2

Abstract: Finite element analyses were conducted of the threaded marine riser connector which has the main, internal, and external shoulder seals. The objectives of the analyses are to evaluate the fatigue resistance, strength, and seal capability of the connector under the bending, tensile, internal and external pressure loads. An element which models the bending effect in an axisymmetric body is developed and implemented into the computer program ADINA. Using the program, stress concentration factors at the corner and threaded parts of the connector under these loads are obtained. The large contribution of both shoulders to the reduction of the stress concentration factors is found to be quite clear. The seal mechanism and the stress response of the connectors are also clarified. The fatigue evaluation based on ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Sec. III, Rules for Construction of Nuclear Power Plant Components, Division 1, Subsection NB are compared with the experimental results.

Behavior of slab-stiffened culvert structures

ISSN: 0315-1468 CODEN: CJCEB8

Abstract: Large span elliptical culverts stiffened over the upper portion with a concrete cap can be used economically in highway construction at locations where only a small soil cover is possible. The behavior of such structures based on analyses obtained using the finite element program ADINA is presented. The load-carrying mechanism for the composite structure is dependent primarily on the amount of lateral deformation permitted by the adjacent soil and the thickness of the concrete cap. It is concluded that the behavior of the structure is that of a flat arch; but, with the lateral deformations likely to occur, the concrete section should be proportioned as a simple beam. (4 refs.)

Abstract: The role of nonlinear rate-dependent effects in the interpolation of crack run-arrest events in ductile materials is being investigated by the Heavy-Section Steel Technology (HSST) program through development and applications of viscoplastic-dynamic finite element analysis techniques. This paper describes studies where various viscoplastic constitutive models and several proposed nonlinear fracture criteria are being installed in general purpose (ADINA) and special purpose (VISCRK) finite element computer programs. The models implemented in these computer programs include the Bodner-Partom and the Perzyna viscoplastic formulations; the proposed fracture criteria include three parameters that are based on energy principles. The predictive capabilities of the nonlinear techniques are evaluated through applications to a series of HSST wide-plate crack-arrest tests. To assess the impact of including viscoplastic effects in the computational models, values of fracture parameters calculated in elastodynamic and in viscoplastic-dynamic analyses are compared for a large wide-plate test. Plans are reviewed for additional computational and experimental studies to assess the utility of viscoplastic analysis techniques in constructing a dynamic inelastic fracture mechanics model for ductile steels.

Abstract: This paper describes procedures for design sensitivity analysis and optimization of nonlinear structural systems with the computer program ADINA. Formulation of the structural optimization problem, design sensitivity analysis with nonlinear response using incremental finite element procedures, and two strategies to use ADINA for design optimization are described. A database and a modern database management system are used to couple ADINA with design sensitivity analysis and optimization modules. Comparison of optimum designs with linear and nonlinear structural responses for trusses with material and geometric nonlinearities are given. More complex structures can be optimized with the developed procedures to fully exploit the capabilities of ADINA. (19 refs.)

Abstract: Ice-sheet/structure iteration models were prepared and analyzed numerically. The study covers parameters to analyze displacement boundaries, the effects of sharp foward ridges, artificially induced cracks, etc. The models were analyzed using finite element techniques. Nonlinear material property and geometry effects were also considered. The resulting force, stress and displacement patterns indicate that a modified geometry of structure will produce smaller forces to break up the ice, especially when coupled with radial precuts in strategic locations. Results show good agreement with the experimental data obtained by Frederking and Timco. The analytical expressions available to predict floating ice loads on structures can be verified and re-evaluated by extending present work. (10 refs.)

Abstract: A large deflection dynamic nonlinear analysis of the response of a rectangular plate to an explosive blast has been performed using 40 four-noded 3-D shell elements in the ADINA finite element code. The top surface of the plate is uniformly loaded with a modified Friedlander reflected blast overpressure which decays with time exponentially. The plate is assumed to be hinged along all four edges which is realistic since the supports normally move and rotate to some extent due to motion of the connecting elements. The displacements due to a bilinear material model using materially nonlinear formulation were compared with predictions from the total Lagrangian formulation as well as a linear elastic analysis performed during an earlier investigation.
