LS-DYNA®, LS-OPT®, LS-PrePost®
Applications & Capabilities
Automotive Crashworthiness & Occupant Safety
LS-DYNA is widely used by the automotive industry to analyze vehicle designs. LS-DYNA accurately predicts a car's behavior in a collision and the effects of the collision upon the car's occupants. With LS-DYNA, automotive companies and their suppliers can test car designs without having having to tool or experimentally test a prototype, thus saving time and expense.
Sheet Metal Forming With LS-DYNA
One of LS-DYNA's most widely used applications is sheet metal forming. LS-DYNA accurately predicts the stresses and deformations experienced by the metal, and determines if the metal will fail. LS-DYNA supports adaptive remeshing and will refine the mesh during the analysis, as necessary, to increase accuracy and save time.
Metal forming applications for LS-DYNA include:
Aerospace Industry Applications
LS-DYNA is widely used by the aerospace industry to simulate bird strike, jet engine blade containment, and structural failure.
Aerospace applications for LS-DYNA include:
windshield & engine blande
Other LS-DYNA applications include:
Can and shipping container design
Electronic component design
Plastics, mold, and blow forming
(golf clubs, golf balls, baseball bats, helmets)
