Contact Modeling in LS-DYNA

Prerequisite: Attendees should have basic knowledge of LS-DYNA and the contact.
Objective: The aim of this class is to provide attendees with the framework and workflow of the contact in LS-DYNA®. This seminar helps the attendees understand the low level details of the contact and get proficient at contact modeling, debugging and fine tuning techniques.

Description:There are over 70 different contact algorithms implemented in LS-DYNA with various options and parameters. The default settings work smoothly for most models. For modern models, the contacts may take more than 40% of the CPU time plus waiting time. With the background details of contacts as well as the options and parameters, the attendees will create hands-on contact models to explore various modeling approaches with different contact types and options. The hands-on models will demonstrate the contact workflow and the difference between the options and parameters.

Durations: 2 Days
Language: Mandarin
The following topics will be discussed with interactive sessions to the attendees understand the contact.

• Algorithms of contact types in LS-DYNA:
node-to-segment, beam-to-beam, and segment-to-segment
one-way,  smooth, automatic, surface-to-surface, single-surface
constraint, penalty, and backup penalty.

• Contact surface, projection and initial penetration treatment
tied, tied-break, offset, beam-offset, IGNORE, FTORQ, SRNDE

• Parallelization and Performance
smp, mpp, groupable, non-blocking, region, contact cost

• General practice
small vs big contact, bucket sort frequency, tracking slave nodes

• Debugging
contact thickness & stiffness, damping, ISOFT=0/1
Stability, TIEDID
Contact pair migration

• Performance tuning-up
timing and profiling
