Ansys LS-Dyna Overview
In November 2019, Ansys acquired LSTC, the authors of the explicit finite element code LS-DYNA. Ansys LS-DYNA is the most used explicit simulation program, capable of simulating the response of materials to short periods of severe loading.
Ansys LS-DYNA has a vast array of capabilities to simulate extreme deformation problems using its explicit solver. Engineers can tackle simulations involving material failure and look at how the failure progresses through a part or through a system. Models with large amounts of parts or surfaces interacting with each other are also easily handled, and the interactions and load passing between complex behaviors are modeled accurately.
