ANSYS LS-DYNA is the most commonly used explicit simulation program, capable of simulating the response of materials to short periods of severe loading. Its many elements, contact formulations, material models and other controls can be used to simulate complex models with control over all the details of the problem.
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. Using computers with higher numbers of CPU cores can drastically reduce solution times.
LS-OPT is a standalone design optimization and probabilistic analysis package with an interface to LS-DYNA.Learn More
LS-PrePost is an advanced pre- and post-processor that is delivered free with Ansys LS-DYNA. The user interface is designed to be efficient and intuitive. LS-PrePost runs on Windows, Linux and Macs utilizing OpenGL graphics to achieve fast rendering and XY plotting.
LS-TaSC™ is a topology and shape computation tool. Developed for engineering analysts who need to optimize structures, LS-TaSC works with both the implicit and explicit solvers of LS-DYNA. LS-TaSC handles topology optimization of large nonlinear problems involving dynamic loads and contact conditions.
Free or low-cost FE models are important to Ansys LS-DYNA users in various fields. So Ansys is offering FE models free of charge to licensees of LS-DYNA who are current with their annual license fees (Annual License) or maintenance fees (Paid-up License). Models are fully unencrypted and accessible. Ansys endeavors to make these models as complete, accurate, reliable and easy to use as possible.
