The LS-DYNA Forum is an ideal place to exchange your experiences and findings with other users across the LS-DYNA product range as well as the associated CAE process chains. It will also give you the opportunity for a straightforward introduction to application areas of LS-DYNA, which you might have wanted to know about for a long time.

The conference starts with the half-day LS-DYNA Developer Forum where you will directly receive information from software developers about already available features and future developments in LS-DYNA.

The second part of the conference is the LS-DYNA User Forum. You are warmly welcome to actively contribute to the conference agenda by submitting an abstract. In your presentation you may report about your experience with LS-DYNA or LS-OPT as well as exchange your knowledge and discuss your problems with other users.

You are cordially invited to contribute by submitting a paper. Contributions from various areas of application of LS-DYNA/LS-OPT are planned. These include:

  • Crashworthiness
  • Passenger and Pedestrian Safety
  • Metal Forming
  • Optimization and Robustness
  • Materials (composites, polymers, ...)
  • Joining Techniques
  • Implicit
  • Impact
  • Droptest
  • Ballistics and Penetration
  • Fluid-Structure Interaction
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Heat transfer
  • Electromagnetics
  • Multiphysics
  • Manufacturing processes
  • CAE process integration

... from the industry areas:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Shipbuilding/Offshore
  • Transportation
  • Biomechanics
  • Civil Engineering
  • Medical Engineering
  • Packaging
  • ...

As always, there is an accompanying exhibition of selected hardware and software manufacturers, which offers an exquisite chance to gather information on the latest news and trends around LS-DYNA.

Moreover, we are pleased to offer you several English spoken seminars in the week before, during and after the Forum, which will be either held by LS-DYNA developers or experienced consulting engineers. The seminars need to be booked separately – participants of the LS-DYNA forum receive a 10% discount on the seminar fees.

Last but not least, several employees of the DYNAmore will be available for your disposal to answer your questions or simply provide tips and tricks on the LS-DYNA product range.

We hope that we have stimulated your interest and are looking forward to seeing you in Bamberg.
