Dynaflow™ is a finite element analysis program for the static and transient response of linear and nonlinear two- and three-dimensional systems. In particular, it offers transient analysis capabilities for both parabolic and hyperbolic initial value problems in solid, structural and fluid mechanics. There are no restrictions on the number of elements, the number of load cases, the number of load-time functions, and the number or bandwidth of the equations. Despite large system capacity, no loss of efficiency is encountered in solving small problems. In both static and transient analyses, an implicit-explicit predictor-(multi)corrector scheme is used. The nonlinear implicit solution algorithms available include: successive substitutions, Newton-Raphson, modified Newton and quasi-Newton (BFGS and Broyden updates) iterations, with selective line search options.
