We are able to comprehend the physics of brief-duration events thanks to Explicit Dynamics. Events that take place in milliseconds or even less time, such as a ball hitting a bat, a phone falling to the ground, or a vehicle crash can be simulated using Explicit Dynamics.
Explicit Dynamics method may also be used to simulate cases with high nonlinearities, where obtaining convergence via implicit methods is not possible. We discuss the theory underlying Explicit Dynamics simulations in this course.
This course is an introductory course to Explicit Dynamics Theory. While no previous knowledge of Explicit Dynamics is required, fundamental knowledge of the finite element method is required.
Engineers who wish to use Explicit Dynamics solvers (e.g., LS-DYNA and Autodyn) for their simulations and wish to gain knowledge about the theory of the Explicit method used by these solvers.
