The site presents an online documentation for LS-PrePost, with many explanations and tutorials. LS-PrePost is an advanced pre and post-processor that is delivered free with LS-DYNA. The user interface is designed to be both efficient and intuitive.
The site presents approximately 200 examples for LS-DYNA from various training classes. The majority of examples have been contributed by LSTC. The examples are presented with a brief description. You may find an example by checking a specific class or by using the search functionality of the site. Further classes will be added continously.
The site presents papers from European and International LS-DYNA User Conferences and papers provided by other users. In total more than 460 papers are available. The papers are access-able via the search functionality below.
On this site, finite element models of full vehicles can be found and downloaded free of charge. The site is operated by the Center for Collision Safety and Analysis (CCSA), formerly known as National Crash Analysis Center (NCAC).
Crash and occupant safety analysis software must be able to handle large deformations, sophisticated material models (for steel and aluminum, rubbers, foams, plastics, and composites), complex contact conditions among multiple components, and short-duration impact dynamics. The software must be capable of simulating different types of car crash events: frontal impact, side impact, rear impact, and rollover.
