   CRASH Analysis

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.

Crashworthiness simulation is less expensive and yields more information than experimental techniques. Because of its extensive capabilities for handling crashworthiness and occupant safety simulations, LS-DYNA is used worldwide by leading automobile manufacturers and their suppliers.
