liquid propellant tank bladder structural analysis software

liquid propellant tank bladder structural analysis software

(OP)
Hi All,

I hope someone can help me.   Back in the mid 1980's  I used a what I recall is a NASA software package that modeled the bladder/membrane as the bladder/membrane moved under pressure to move liquid fuel inside a propellant tank.

I thought the package was named something like - BOSCOR - but that is not it as I can not find anything like that on the www.

Any "older" guys out there recall this software name ?

I have an application now that would just fit with that software.    

I have checked ANSYS, ABAQUS, etc.. but they do not solve the problem I presently have - not that they could not, just that to learn the nonlinear modeling of some of these large scale FEA codes would not be worth it - better to try and find the old code for this application.

Thanks.

SINDA?  I'll ask the wife, she may remember.

I recall SINDA - but that is not the program I am referring to.   SINDA was very popular in the time period I am talking about.

TRACES + SINDA are programs used to determine orbital temperatures on spacecraft structure.

There was a NASA package called BOSOR
