Many possibilities exist to reuse the same models developed for rapid events and explicit time integration also for non-linear quasi-static analyses and linear statics with only minor modifications, and many users could benefit from taking advantage of these.
This course addresses the conversion of an existing explicit LS-DYNA model to an implicit version of it. In detail, it focuses on how to set up non-linear implicit analyses in LS-DYNA starting out from explicit (crash-worthiness-type) models. It is a hands-on course with many workshop examples, ranging from the basic setup of linear stiffness analyses to more involved non-linear sub-system analyses. Practical troubleshooting tips and guidance on how to avoid many common pitfalls are also given.
- Basic knowledge of LS-DYNA or prior completion of the Introduction to Ansys LS-DYNA course is recommended.
Automotive Engineers, Crash and Safety Engineers or anyone experienced with LS-DYNA explicit analyses who also want to understand and use LS-DYNA implicit simulation capabilities.
Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.
