ANSYS Explicit Dynamics analysis software provides simulation technology to help simulate structural performance long before manufacture. CAE Associates offers ANSYS LS-DYNA, ANSYS AUTODYN, and ANSYS Explicit STR software solutions that solve complex physical problems by simulating physical events that may be difficult or costly to conduct in a test environment. ANSYS explicit dynamics analysis software solutions are capable of solving short-duration, large-strain, large-deformation, fracture, complete material failure, and structural problems with complex contact interactions. ANSYS LS-DYNA, ANSYS AUTODYN, and ANSYS Explicit STR software modules take advantage of the powerful and comprehensive ANSYS Workbench environment to enable bi-directional CAD connectivity, geometry clean-up tools, automatic meshing, and quick simple definition of initial and boundary conditions.

Explicit Dynamics Analysis Software

  • By accurately simulating complex, nonlinear phenomena, the time-tested, ANSYS LS-DYNA explicit dynamics analysis software helps engineers understand the complexities involved with crash tests, metal forging, stamping and catastrophic failures.
  • ANSYS AUTODYN software is an explicit dynamics analysis tool for modeling the nonlinear dynamics of solids, liquids, and gases, as well as their interaction. The software has been developed to provide advanced capabilities within a robust, easy-to-use interface.
  • ANSYS Explicit STR software is fully integrated into the unified ANSYS Workbench environment, enabling convenient and seamless combination of explicit dynamics analysis software with a range of multiphysics solutions, including electrical, thermal, mechanical and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
