Simulate the response of materials to short periods of severe loading
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. 


Nonlinear Structural Analysis

Simulate models with large amounts of contacts, joints and other connections undergoing drop, impact and other short timescale events.

ANSYS Workbench Integration

LS-DYNA's integration into ANSYS Workbench via ACT means fast and easy model setup and parametric simulation capabilities.

Element and Contact Combinations

Use any combination of solid, shell or beam element for ultimate flexibility in model definition.
