The core dump is typically called "core" and is usually in the directory from which the program started. If not you can do "find / -name core" to try to find core files. If you do "file <pathto>/core" it should show you information about what the core file is an image of.

Note that you might have to change limits to allow core files beyond a certain size or at all depending on the distro you're on.
