Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC) develops LS-DYNA, LS-PrePost, LS-OPT, LS-TASC (Topology), and LSTC's Dummy & Barrier models for use in various industries, including Automobile Design, Aerospace, Manufacturing, and Bioengineering. LS-DYNA development is focused on one code methodology that includes Implicit, Explicit, SMP and MPP solvers. It is optimized on all platforms including clusters running UNIX, Linux, and Windows operating systems.


LS-DYNA is a general-purpose finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. It is used by the automobile, aerospace, construction, military, manufacturing, and bioengineering industries. LS-DYNA is optimized for shared and distributed memory UNIX, Linux, and Windows based, platforms, and it is fully QA'd by LSTC. The code's origins lie in highly nonlinear, transient dynamic finite element analysis using explicit time integration.
