Penetration Modeling

Penetration events form a class of simulation environments well suited to the solution capabilities of LS-DYNA. LS-DYNA is unique in offering the analyst the choice of Lagrange, Eulerian (ALE) and Meshfree Methods, and combinations of these methods, for simulating high energy events such as penetration and perforation. In addition to high energy, these events are typically associated with large deformations, damage, and failure both on the material and structural level. During the past decade successful modeling of such damage and failure has moved steadily from a „Black Art” to a widely accepted engineering practice.

This class focuses on the application of LS-DYNA for the simulation of high energy events. The analysis methods, and modeling, are illustrated through case studies. An emphasis is placed on modeling techniques: guidelines for which technique(s) to select, insights into which techniques work well and when, and possible pitfalls in modeling choice selections.

Sufficient mathematical theory is presented for each technique, especially Meshfree Methods, to provide the typical user with adequate knowledge to confidently apply the appropriate analysis technique. However, this training class is not a substitute for the in-depth treatments presented in the associated LS-DYNA training classes, i.e. „ALE/Eulerian & Fluid Structure Interaction” and „Mesh-Free Methods (SPH-EFG)”, respectively.
