LS-DY­NA is a gen­er­al-pur­pose fi­nite el­e­ment pro­gram ca­pa­ble of sim­u­lat­ing

com­plex re­al world prob­lems. It is used by the au­to­mo­bile, aero­space,

con­struc­tion, mil­i­tary, man­u­fac­tur­ing, and bio­engi­neer­ing in­dus­tries. LS-DY­NA is op­ti­mized for shared and dis­trib­uted mem­o­ry Unix, Lin­ux, and Win­dows based, plat­forms, and it is ful­ly QA’d by ANSYS LST.


A stand­alone de­sign op­ti­miza­tion and prob­a­bilis­tic analy­sis pack­age with an in­ter­face to LS-DY­NA.In the “con­ven­tion­al de­sign” ap­proach, a de­sign is im­proved by eval­u­at­ing its “re­sponse” and mak­ing de­sign changes based on ex­pe­ri­ence or in­tu­ition. A sys­tem­at­ic ap­proach can be ob­tained by us­ing an in­verse process of first spec­i­fy­ing the cri­te­ria and then com­put­ing the ‘best’ de­sign ac­cord­ing to a for­mu­la­tion.


An ad­vanced pre and post-proces­sor that is de­liv­ered free with LS-DY­NA. The user in­ter­face is de­signed to be both ef­fi­cient and in­tu­itive. LS-Pre­Post runs on Win­dows, Lin­ux, and Macs uti­liz­ing OpenGL graph­ics to achieve fast ren­der­ing and XY plot­ting.


A topol­o­gy and shape com­pu­ta­tion tool. De­vel­oped for en­gi­neer­ing an­a­lysts who need to op­ti­mize struc­tures, LS-TaSC works with both the im­plic­it and ex­plic­it solvers of LS-DY­NA. LS-TaSC han­dles topol­o­gy op­ti­miza­tion of large non-lin­ear prob­lems, in­volv­ing dy­nam­ic loads and con­tact con­di­tions.
