LS-DYNA is an advanced general-purpose multiphysics simulation software package developed by the Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC).
LS-DYNA's potential applications are numerous and can be tailored to many fields. LS-DYNA is not limited to any particular type of simulation. In a given simulation, any of LS-DYNA's many features can be combined to model a wide variety of physical events. An example of a simulation that involves a unique combination of features is the NASA JPL Mars Pathfinder landing which simulated the space probe's use of airbags to aid in its landing.
LS-DYNA's analysis capabilities:
Full 2D & 3D capabilities
Rigid body dynamics
ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian)
FSI (Fluid-Structure Interaction)
Compressible fluid solver, CESE (Conservation Element & Solution Element)
FEM-rigid multi-body dynamics coupling (MADYMO, Cal3D)
SPH (Smoothed particle hydrodynamics)
DEM (Discrete element method)
EFG (Element Free Galerkin)
