Abstract:

The program SLAMCODE is a large Finite Element Method FEM code capable of dynamic analysis of transient problems. It was adapted from the original SLAMCODE written by C. J. Costantino Costantino, 1968 by incorporating the implicit Newmark B-integration Newmark, 1959 and by constraining the free surface to be stress free. The present code also differs from the original by not permitting plastic elements. It calculates solutions for axisymmetric, plane stress or plane strain problems, as in the original code. It is designed to run on the IBM 360 family of computers under 0S360. Although it is written in Fortran, it can be easily adapted to other computer systems. Computer program listings are included.
