Fortran Programming Silverfrost Error 112

  1. Aug 31, 2013 #1
    I'm new to Fortran, trying to run this program but when I enter the variables it gives me an error 112.

    Please help me find where is the mistake. I copied the program from an old book.

    DIMENSION S(50),V(50) ! Element stress and velocity
    DIMENSION U(51) ! Nodal displacement
    ! Double arrays for tabular or graph representation of stress discontinuity
    DIMENSION X(102),SP(102)
    WRITE(*,*) 'Number of elements N<=50' ! Imput data
    READ(*,*) N
    WRITE(*,*) 'Number of time steps NT'
    READ(*,*) NT
    DO 10 J=1,N ! Initial state of the system at T=O.
    10 U(J)=0.
    DX=1./N ! Length of element
    DT=DX ! Time increment
    DO 20 I=1,NT ! Beginning of time loop
    T=I*DT ! Current time
    S1=-1. ! Boundary conditions at free end, J=1
    U(1)=U(1)+V1*DT ! Displacement at J=1
    DO 30 J=2,N ! Beginning of element loop
    V2=0.5*(V(J)+V(J-1)+S(J)-S(J-1)) ! V and S at right border
    S2=S(J-1)+V2-V(J-1) ! of the element J-1
    U(J)=U(J)+V2*DT ! Displacement at node J
    V(J-1)=V1+V2-V(J-1) ! New values of V and S
    S(J-1)=S1+S2-S(J-1) ! for element J-1
    V1=V2 ! V and S at left border
    S1=S2 ! of element J
    30 CONTINUE ! End of element loop
    V2=0. ! Boundary conditions at fixed
    S2=S(N)+V2-V(N) ! end, J=N+1
    V(N)=V1+V2-V(N) ! New values of V and S
    S(N)=S1+S2-S(N) ! for element J=N
    20 CONTINUE ! End of time loop
    ! To output of stress discontinuity along the rod length
    DO 40 JP=3,NP+2
    OPEN(5,FILE='STRESS') ! Element stress vs. rod length at I=NT
    WRITE(5,*)'Element stress vs. rod length'
    WRITE(5,*)' X S(X)'
    50 FORMAT(2X,2(E12.5,2X))
    OPEN(7,FILE='RESULTS') ! Control results for NT=2*N
    WRITE(7,*) 'Control results for NT=2*N'
    WRITE(7,*) 'Input data: N=',N,' ','NT=',NT
    WRITE(7,*) 'Benchmark: T=2, U(1 )=2, S(N)=-2, S2=-2'
    WRITE(7,*) 'Calculated: T=',T,' ','U(1)=',U(1)
    WRITE(7,*) 'S(N)=',S(N),' ','S2=',S2
    END ! End of Program

    Thank you very much.

    Enclose programming code in the [\CODE] tags when posting. This helps preserve the original indenting, and Fortran 77 and older versions are sensitive to having statements start in a particular column.

    One of your array variables is outside of its dimensioned limits. About the only thing I can suggest is that you insert some WRITE statements inside the loops to determine where the failure is occurring. This particular problem is best solved running the program and not scanning the source.

    WRITE(*,*) 'Number of elements N<=50' ! Imput data

    Above line has spelling error. I don't know if it makes any difference.

    The text after the '!' is treated as a comment. It is stripped out by the compiler before any code generation takes place and does not affect the execution of the program. The error lies elsewhere.

    Seemingly F77, the source for sure lost possible indentation; then, again, F77 is a subset of F90. So, I simply copied and pasted the source above and compiled with every line starting in column 1, it compiled and run...I did not see any error message.

    Maybe you can paste exactly the entire output when you run it. I don't know anything about Silverfrost and how it runs program...I rather see you starting a DOS terminal of your own, running the program from the command line and seeing all output there.

    Well, like I said, the program compiled and run for me...but I don't know what I am doing and simply punched a couple of numbers.

    Upon second review, I can see that if you specify the maximum allowed N of 50, NP turns out 100 and the last loop lets JP go to NP+2 = 102...the index JP-1=101 which is o.k. for SP of length 102; but the index JP/2=51 is not o.k. for S of length 50.

    I suspect it doesn't work correctly for any even value of N, since the "last" value of S that is used is never calculated.

    It might be doing the wrong thing for odd values of N as well, but we don't know what it's supposed to calculate that's just guessing.

    I see what you mean...the last value in the loop being JP=NP+2 and the index of S being JP/2 = (NP+2)/2 = (2N+2)/2 = N + 1 ...and, you are right, it does not look like the value of S(N+1) is ever calculated...heck, either even or odd N
