  • A basic knowledge of dynamics and strength of materials (material modeling) is highly recommended.
  • Knowledge of the physics of transient dynamic events is also recommended.
  • Completion of the Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical (FEA 101) course is required.

This course covers the use of ANSYS LS-DYNA inside Workbench Mechanical.  ANSYS LS-DYNA is useful for the analysis of problems involving contact, large deformation, nonlinear materials, transient response, and/or problems requiring explicit solutions. Common applications for which LS-DYNA excels include safety and stability, crash test and drop test simulation, as well as forming applications.
