LS-DYNA Compact: Contact Modeling in LS-DYNA

The proper treatment the contact behavior between different components is essential for the reliable of a simulation model. Driven by the increased demands for a wider range of applications of computer simulations, e. g. new numerical methods or multi-physical applications, the existing possibilities for contact description in LS-DYNA are
constantly being developed further or have been supplemented by new methods. As a result, over the years LS-DYNA has gained a vast amount of contact-treatments possibilities inside the simulation model. However, due to this variety, it becomes more and more difficult for the user to choose the suitable contact algorithm together with the suitable parameters.

In this webinar gives a deeper insight into the possibilities for contact treatment in LS-DYNA. This will enable the user to select the
appropriate contact type for its application together with the appropriate control parameters. Note that the webinar serves
as an extension to the our seminar/webinar "Introduction to LS-DYNA" and, thus, merely reviews the basics of contact definitions in LS-DYNA.

Note that this webinar is a condensed version of our attendance class "Contact Modelling in LS-DYNA".

Courses are held from 9-11 a.m.  (CET) on 3 consecutive days.

Please note: The course will be held in Ansys Learning Hub. We will send the credentials shortly before the training.


  • Definition of contact domains
  • Advanced contact strategies, e. g. forming, segment-based contacts, mortate contacts
  • Advanced control parameters
  • Troubleshooting guidelines

In comparison to our webinar „Introduction to Contact Modeling Compact“, this webinar gives a deeper insight into contact modelling with LS-DYNA.
