Introduction to LS-DYNA non-linear implicit analysis

LS-DYNA is well suited for handling many challenging implicit analysis applications, involving large deformations, contacts and material non-linearity. The scalability on many CPU cores is very good, which allows for treatment of large scale problems. Many advanced material models are available. This course presents a brief, practical introduction to the implicit capabilities in LS-DYNA with a focus on structural analysis. The course is suited for users with some previous experience from using LS-DYNA, or for experienced users of other implicit FE-programs.
