LS-PrePost

Introduction

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. LS-PrePost runs on Windows, Linux, and Unix utilizing OpenGL graphics to achieve fast rendering and XY plotting. The latest builds can be downloaded from LSTC's FTP Site.

 

User-Defined Material for LS-DYNA

This page describes how to specify user defined material to use within LS-DYNA.  The user-defined subroutines in LS-DYNA allow the program to be customized for particular applications.  In order to define user material, LS-DYNA must be recompiled.

Availability

LS-DYNA with user defined material models are only available on the Glenn Cluster.

Version

The following versions on Glenn are available for use with user defined material models:

CFX

CFX is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program for modeling fluid flow and heat transfer in a variety of applications.

STAR-CCM+

STAR-CCM+ provides the world’s most comprehensive engineering physics simulation inside a single integrated package. Much more than a CFD code, STAR‑CCM+ provides an engineering process for solving problems involving flow (of fluids and solids), heat transfer and stress. STAR‑CCM+ is unrivalled in its ability to tackle problems involving multi‑physics and complex geometries.  Support is provided by CD-adapco.

OpenFOAM

OpenFOAM is a suite of computational fluid dynamics applications. It contains myriad solvers, both compressible and incompressible, as well as many utilities and libraries.

ANSYS

ANSYS is an engineering package and support routine for general-purpose finite-element analysis: statics, heat transfer, mode frequency, stability analysis, magnetostatics, coupled field analysis, etc. Supports are provided by ANSYS, Inc.

FLUENT

FLUENT is a state-of-the-art computer program for modeling fluid flow and heat transfer in complex geometries.
