User Materials

With this recording of the compact webinar, you can follow the course on your own computer at your own schedule.

LS-DYNA offers the possibility to implement own material models into the code of the program. Therefore the user developed and compiled material routines will be linked with the corresponding LS-DYNA object-files. The webinar addresses as well to users from the industrial as to users from an academical research background that integrate their own material models in LS-DYNA and are interested in discussing their experience with the implementation in a wider circle of users.

Please note that this course is only available to employees of companies or universities. Students and private individuals are excluded from use.
