LS-DYNA Compact: From Explicit to Implicit Simulation Models in LS-DYNA

  • Product development today means satisfying requirements within a variety of fields like crash safety, durability and sound comfort for a passenger car. The one-code strategy of LS-DYNA makes it possible to apply the same analysis tool from process simulation to large deformation rapid events like drop test and crash analyses, to non-linear quasi-static analyses, and linear dynamics in the frequency domain.

  • Applying the same solver makes it easier to share experiences within the organization, and to compose agile teams of analysts for different tasks. A uniform modelling approach with respect to connectors, materials, contacts etc. can be used. The same models developed for rapid events and explicit time integration can be reused also for non-linear quasi-static analyses and linear statics with only minor modifications.

  • This Webinar will briefly address how to set up non-linear implicit analyses in
    LS-DYNA starting out from explicit (crash-worthiness-type) models and outline the possibilities for a unified approach to multi-disciplinary analyses.

The course will take place from 9-11 a.m. (CET) on two consecutive days.
