  • Brief introduction to LS-OPT
  • The optimization problem for the parameter identification
  • Objective function: to minimize deviations between simulations and experiments (least-squares principle)
  • Constraints
  • Optimization variables
  • Normalization and weighting
  • Min. / max. formulation: minimizing the maximum deviation
  • Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Simultaneous adaptation of several experiments (e.g. tensile test, shear test and biaxial test)
  • Starting LS-DYNA simulations and job control in LS-OPT
  • Analysis and evaluation of optimization results
  • Live demonstration
