Application of LS-DYNA Implicit for the Design of Plastic Components

LS-Dyna is a common code in explicit analysis. Starting in 1997 the implicit capabilities are continuously being enhanced. Up from v970 most of the subroutines and data arrays can be used by both explicit and implicit. Switching between the codes can be done without overhead. In this presentation differences between explicit and implicit time integration are described and examples using the code in product development for plastic components are depicted.
