Abstract : The program SHOCK3D deals with the shock response of a 3D structure, being composed from elastic parts, rigid bodies and non-linear mountings. Shock loading is in the form of prescribed shock motions as they are defined by several Navies in Equipment Shock Specifications (UNDEX shock) or in the form of prescribed forces. Mass- and stiffness matrices for the elastic parts are assembled within a separate f.e.m. program. A transient response analysis leads to time histories which can be plotted. Test problems have been added. A pc version may be used in case there is no need to include elastic parts.
