LS-DYNA Tutorial - Free Examples

Hope you had a brief introduction about Hypermesh and its Tutorials in previous article. Well this time adding flavour to it lets see about LS-DYNA in this article.

LS-DYNA is an advanced general-purpose multiphysics simulation software package that is actively developed by the Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC). While the package continues to contain more and more possibilities for the calculation of many complex, real world problems, its origins and core-competency lie in highly nonlinear transient dynamic finite element analysis using explicit time integration.

LS-DYNA analysis capabilities:

  • Nonlinear dynamics
  • Rigid body dynamics
  • Quasi-static simulations
  • Normal modes
  • Linear statics
  • Thermal analysis
  • Fluid analysis
    • Eulerian capabilities
    • ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian)
    • Fluid-structure interactions
  • FEM-rigid multi-body dynamics coupling (MADYMO, CAL3D)
  • Underwater shock
  • Failure analysis
  • Crack propagation
  • Real-time acoustics
  • Design optimization
  • Implicit springback
  • Multi-physics coupling
  • Structural-thermal coupling
  • Adaptive remeshing
  • Smooth particle hydrodynamics
  • element-free meshless method
