Resumo (em inglês)
The present work concerns the inclusion of functionalities into the free software INSANE – INteractive Structural ANalysis Environment for the physically non-linear thermal analysis in solid bodies by the Finite Element Method when the physical properties of the material are temperature dependent. INSANE is a multi-platform object-oriented computational system being developed at the Federal University of Minas Gerais – UFMG. Once the physical properties are temperature dependent, Newton’s iterative method is used to calculate the desired solution. The implementation was tested comparing the numerical results to analytical solutions available in the literature. The segmentation and generalization of the INSANE’s numerical core allowed the reuse of the existing classes to support the software expansion.
