Unlimited usage of ADINA throughout the university with no restriction on the

number of concurrent users, problem sizes and analysis capabilities.

The ADINA System can be used to

analyze structural, thermal, CFD, electromagnetics, fluid-structure
interaction, thermo-mechanical coupling and multiphysics problems.

One pre- and post-processor for all analysis types, with solid modeling capabilities
based on the Parasolid Kernel (e.g., NX, SolidEdge, SolidWorks) and also the IGES

The theory and formulations used in ADINA follow closely the material in the
book Finite Element Procedures by K. J. Bathe. The source code of the programs in
the book can be downloaded:
Unix version (tar and gzip) or PC version (winzip). Solutions to exercises are given in
this manual (pdf).
In addition, the following books can be used to complement the above reference:

The Finite Element Analysis of Shells Fundamentals by D. Chapelle and K.

J. Bathe

Inelastic Analysis of Solids and Structures by M. Kojic and K. J. Bathe

The Mechanics of Solids and Structures: Hierarchical Modeling and the Finite
Element Solution
by M. L. Bucalem and K. J. Bathe

Courses taught by Prof. Bathe at MIT are available through the MIT Open Course
Ware as an online source for teaching finite element methods:
