The program system DAEdalon is developed since the beginning of 2002 as an open FEM program by Dr.-Ing. Steffen Eckert and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Herbert Baaser.
It is based on MatLab and gives the user an open structure for developments for research and training purposes.
- general solution of nonlinear, elliptical 2D and 3D boundary value problems (quasi-static problems)
- general solution of nonlinear, hyperbolic 2D and 3D initial boundary value problems (dynamic problems)
- Formulations alternatively in reference or actual configuration
- open element and material interface
- general nonlinear material behavior (elastic, inelastic)
- flexible number of internal variables
- several different material laws can be used in the same problem
- Arc-length method
- graphic user interface (GUI)
- Use of GiD as Preprocessor is supported
- Result files for undeformed and deformed mesh, contour plots, boundary conditions, node and element numbers, reaction forces
- very flexible post processing by use of Perl Scripts
