Upcoming seminars this year

LS-DYNA, Simulation of sheet metal forming processes, Nov 8-10
This 3-day course is intended for people who want to use LS-DYNA for metal forming simulations. The course will cover how different aspects of metal forming processes are modeled in LS-DYNA and how to do this as accurate and efficiently as possible. The attendee will acquire deep knowledge in settings and techniques in several parts of LS-DYNA which will be beneficial for his/hers daily work and future applications.

Upcoming WEBinars this year

FormingSuite Multistage, Nov 1

Time: 10-11

Dynamore Nordic invites you to a Webex demonstrating FormingSuite MULTISTAGE. This software evaluates and validates formability for parts made from multiple stamping operations.

Its core is a new solver technology that provides the tools necessary to analyze forming processes that involve multiple stages of forming.
