LS-DYNA

LS-DY¬NA is a gen¬er¬al-pur¬pose fi¬nite el¬e¬ment pro¬gram ca¬pa¬ble of sim¬u¬lat¬ing com¬plex re¬al world prob¬lems. Implicit and explicit FEM software LS-DYNA is one of the most advanced simulation tools for nonlinear structural analysis! It is used by the au¬to¬mo¬bile, aero¬space, con-struc¬tion, mil¬i¬tary, man¬u¬fac¬tur¬ing, and bio¬engi¬neer¬ing in¬dus¬tries.
