LS-DYNA is suitable for simulating nonlinear processes with large deformations, stability problems and highly complex contact scenarios.
LSTC LS-DYNA: Simulation of short-duration dynamic effects and highly nonlinear problems
Using the explicit time integration method within LS-DYNA, very fast and highly dynamic problems can be effectively simulated. LS-DYNA is also suitable for quasi static problems involving high nonlinearities wherein implicit time integration method cannot be used because of convergence issues.

Simulation of very large deformations and the most complex contact scenarios
LSTC LS-DYNA solves tasks with complex nonlinearities and avoids convergence issues. For example, short-duration dynamic applications, such as drop, impact and crash simulations, can be performed, e.g. nonlinear processes with large deformations, stability problems and complex contact problems.
