History of DYNAmore Nordic

We have been working with LS-DYNA and advanced simulation since the very early years of the technology. Below is a short history of the company Engineering Research and its successor DYNAmore Nordic.

  • 1980: Professor Larsgunnar Nilsson founds Engineering Research, a privately held company. The objective was to offer consultancy services with DYNA2D and DYNA3D and to sell his newly developed finite element software FEMP. One of the very first European installations of DYNA2D and DYNA3D (the predecessors to LS-DYNA).
  • 1984: Bofors AB, Saab Scania AB and Volvo Car AB start using DYNA3D, supported by Engineering Research.
  • 1986: Engineering Research becomes incorporated (AB).
  • 1986: Saab Scania AB starts using DYNA3D for crash analysis on a regular basis.
  • 1989: Engineering Research becomes the distributor of LS-DYNA in the Nordic Countries.
  • 1991: The first Nordic LS-DYNA Workshop was held in Visby, Sweden
  • 1993: More than 50 LS-DYNA customers in the Nordic countries. The Swedish automotive industry is the largest group of customers.
  • 1999: Engineering Research arranges the 2’nd European LS-DYNA Users Conference in Gothenburg, Sweden
  • 2000:
    • More than 75 LS-DYNA customers in the Nordic countries
    • 5 employees
    • The office is moved to larger premises at Garnisonen in Linköping to allow further expansion.
  • 2006: Engineering Research becomes the General Distributor for Beta CAE Systems (ANSA & Meta pre- and postprocessors) in the Nordic countries.
  • 2007, January 1: Relocation to an office with dedicated class and meeting rooms at Garnisonen in Linköping to allow further expansion.
  • 2007: Volvo Car Corporation chooses LS-DYNA for all their crash simulations.
  • 2010: The staff is now 15 persons, engineers and PhDs.
  • July 1, 2011: DYNAmore Nordic AB is formed when the German LS-DYNA distributor DYNAmore GmbH purchases all the assets of Engineering Research Nordic AB from Professor Larsgunnar Nilsson. DYNAmore Nordic AB inherits all personal and business from Engineering Research Nordic AB.
  • July 2011 (and onwards): DYNAmore Nordic is now a part of the DYNAmore group. The DYNAmore group distributes LS-DYNA in all European countries (and Turkey) except for France, Great Britain and Ireland.
  • 2013, Volvo Trucks chooses LS-DYNA for all their crash simulations
