Transient simulation of impact, drop and crash tests

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.
