Is LS-DYNA an Ansys product?

Is LS-DYNA an Ansys product?

Ansys LS-DYNA is the most used explicit simulation program, capable of simulating the response of materials to short periods of severe loading.

What is Autodyn?

ANSYS Autodyn simulates the response of materials to short duration severe loadings from impact, high pressure or explosions. It is best suited for simulating large material deformation or failure. Autodyn provides advanced solution methods without compromising ease of use.

When did Ansys buy LS-DYNA?

LS-DYNA is an advanced general-purpose multiphysics simulation software package developed by the former Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC), which was acquired by Ansys in 2019.

What is SPH in LS-DYNA?

A new particle element has been added to LS-DYNA. It is based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics theory. SPH is a meshless lagrangian numerical technique used to model the fluid equations of motion.

What is Ansys mechanical?

Ansys Mechanical creates an integrated platform that uses finite element analysis (FEA) for structural analysis. Mechanical is a dynamic environment that has a complete range of analysis tools, from preparing geometry for analysis to connecting additional physics for even greater fidelity.

What is workbench in Ansys?

The Ansys Workbench platform lets you integrate data across engineering simulations to create more accurate models more efficiently. Ansys Workbench makes it easier to make more informed design choices by coordinating all your simulation data in one place. Easily manage data across all your Ansys products.

What is ale in LS Dyna?

In LS-DYNA finite element analysis software, Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) approach can be applied to modeling dynamic loading due to explosives. The main advantage of this method is its good accuracy as it explicitly models the explosive and the pressure wave propagation through the media.
