LS-DYNA R11.0.0 (R11.129956) released

New version of LS-DYNA is released for all common platforms.

Release notes for LS-DYNA R11.0.0

Herein are summarized new features and enhancements in version 11.0.0.  Some bug fixes are also described, some of which may also be included in R10.1 releases.

The items are arranged by category.  Understand that in many cases, a particular item could fall under more than one category, but in the interest of brevity, each item is listed only once, under a single category.

Excluding the “Miscellaneous” category, the categories are arranged alphabetically.
