Title: ALE3D: An Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian Multi-Physics Code

Technical Report ·
DOI:https://doi.org/10.2172/1361589· OSTI ID:1361589

ALE3D is a multi-physics numerical simulation software tool utilizing arbitrary-Lagrangian- Eulerian (ALE) techniques. The code is written to address both two-dimensional (2D plane and axisymmetric) and three-dimensional (3D) physics and engineering problems using a hybrid finite element and finite volume formulation to model fluid and elastic-plastic response of materials on an unstructured grid. As shown in Figure 1, ALE3D is a single code that integrates many physical phenomena.
