Parameter Identification with LS-OPT

The use of new materials, such as plastics, composites, foams, fabrics or high-tensile steels, demands the application of highly complex material models. These material formulations are generally associated with numerous material parameters. The optimization program LS-OPT is ideally suited for identifying these parameters. In the identification process, an automatic comparison is carried out between the experimental results and the simulation results of LS-DYNA. Thereafter, the error between experiments and simulations is minimized.

 

In this seminar, a brief introduction in LS-OPT is made with a focus on the application of LS-OPT to determine material parameters. No prior knowledge about optimization or the application of LS-OPT is required.
