Abstract
This report analyzes commercially available Finite Element (FE) codes for suitability in studying the thermal attack of energetic materials. Two specific scenarios, cook off and hot fragment attack are sed to define the needs and analyze the suitability of the codes. The nonlinearities and the range of time scales involved make the problem difficult. Suitable programs provide special elements, materials and/or loading to accomplish the modeling. These may be provided either by built-in capability or by allowing the analyst to program FORTRAN subroutines and link them to the code.
