4. SCALE: New LoCo version 1.48 available
SCALE announces the release of a new version of the SDM solution LoCo. In the course of extensive optimizations, the perfomance of LoCo has been improved and several new features have been added and adjusted. Detailed release notes can be found here.

5. New THUMS occupant model V5 available
The THUMS occupant model version 5 was released with the addition of an active muscle model. With the added ability to model the action of a human body going from a relaxed posture to a braced posture, the effectiveness of safety equipment, including Pre-Collision Systems (PCS), can be more accurately predicted. More information can be found here.

6. New OASYS newsletter
We would like to introduce you to the new monthly newsletter for the Oasys LS-DYNA Environment, which also contains the preprocessor PRIMER. To stay updated and to receive firsthand information about new features, please subscribe to the OASYS newsletter by sending an e-mail E-Mail to Shareen.Bagan@arup.com.

7. Did you know?
The new LS-DYNA version R9 offers several extensions for implicit simulations with LS-DYNA. But try it out for yourself and download our two new input decks for implicit analysis of the load cases "Roof Crush" and "Seat Pull".
