Abstract

The goal of the present report is to provide for a comprehensive users' manual describing the capabilities of the computer code EURDYN-1D. It includes information and examples about the type of problems which can be solved with the code and explanation on how to prepare input data and, how to interpret output results. The field of application of EURDYN-1D is the one- dimensional dynamic analysis of general structural systems and the code is particularly suited for fast transient events involving propagation of longitudinal mechanical waves (subsonic) in structures. The analysis is one- dimensional in the sense that all conditions are supposed to be uniform over the generic cross-section of the structure, obtained with a plane perpendicular to the axis. In particular, the stress is uniform over a cross-section, thus no bending is taken into account. Both geometrical and physical non-linearities can be taken into account. Typical examples are impact problems, fast dynamic loading due to the explosions or sudden release for initial loads due to failures, etc. To these classes belong many problems encountered in the reactor safety field as well as in more common and general technological applications.
