LS-Dyna for Crashes, Metal Stamping & Drop Tests

May 24, 2023 Conrad Magalis

Ansys LS-DYNA is industry-leading scalable Multiphysics simulation software that is designed to simulate highly nonlinear dynamic short duration events. Its many elements, contract formulations, material models and other controls can be used to simulate complex models with control over all the details of the problem. It is used for applications like drop tests, impact and penetration, smashes and crashes, occupant safety and much more.

In addition, it has tightly integrated and potent Multiphysics simulation capabilities that enable it to solve tough engineering simulation problems like FSI, Battery abuse simulation (requires coupling more than 2 physics) and much more.

LS-DYNA boasts many benefits such as; product safety, certification & compliance, faster time to market, improved performance, product optimization, product reliability and protection, vast HPC support with Ansys Cloud, Multiphysics capability and integration with Ansys Ecosystem, predictive engineering for a wide range of applications. It is also the first commercial software that is available on ARM architecture.
