Blast Analysis with LS-DYNA

D. Hilding (DYNAmore Nordic)


An overview is given of the available methods in LS-DYNA to calculate explosive blast loads from conventional explosives on structures for structural engineering purposes. Advantages and disadvantages with the different methods will be pointed out. The focus is on air-blast.

The intended audience is LS-DYNA users interested in methods for blast & explosion simulation with the goal to be able to do strength/performance analysis of blast loaded structures. Time permitting, a short demonstration will be given
