ACCEPT: a three-dimensional finite element program for large deformation elastic-plastic-creep analysis of pressurized tubes

Description: ACCEPT is a three-dimensional finite element computer program for analysis of large-deformation elastic-plastic-creep response of Zircaloy tubes subjected to temperature, surface pressures, and axial force. A twenty-mode, tri-quadratic, isoparametric element is used along with a Zircaloy materials model. A linear time-incremental procedure with residual force correction is used to solve for the time-dependent response. The program features an algorithm which automatically chooses the time step … more

CYGRO-4 fuel rod analysis computer program

Description: The CYGRO-4 computer program is an advanced version of the CYGRO program for the analysis of axisymmetric deformations of the cross-section of an oxide fueled rod-type fuel element. CYGRO-4, which replaces the CYGRO-3 program, incorporates improved numerical methods, improved time step control, a new fuel-clad and rod-support interaction model, a new thermal conductivity model for the fuel-clad gap, and a new fuel cracking, crack deformation and crack healing model.

Finite deformation analysis of continuum structures with time dependent anisotropic elastic plastic material behavior

Description: A finite element procedure is presented for finite deformation analysis of continuum structures with time-dependent anisotropic elastic-plastic material behavior. An updated Lagrangian formulation is used to describe the kinematics of deformation. Anisotropic constitutive relations are referred, at each material point, to a set of three mutually orthogonal axes which rotate as a unit with an angular velocity equal to the spin at the point. The time-history of the solution is generated by using … more
