This course covers the use of Ansys LS-DYNA inside Workbench Mechanical. Ansys LS-DYNA is useful for the analysis of problems involving contact, large deformation, nonlinear materials, transient response, and/or problems requiring explicit solutions. Common applications for which LS-DYNA excels include safety and stability, crash test and drop test simulation, as well as forming applications.
- Completion of the Ansys Mechanical Getting Started course is required.
- A technical education and a background in the fundamentals of finite element analysis are recommended.
- A basic background in the following areas is also recommended: dynamics, mechanics of materials, material modeling, and the physics of transient dynamic events.
- An engineering degree is not required.
Mechanical Engineers, Impact Dynamics Engineers, Drop Test Engineers and Designers working with structures that experience short-duration and/or high-speed impact events.
Lectures and computer workshops to give students the knowledge and confidence they’ll need to apply what they’ve learned to their own designs.
