Description

Description

The explicit dynamics method is ideal for modeling highly nonlinear, large-deformation, contact-dominated problems that involve impact, multibody contact, and highly nonlinear material behavior. This class will introduce the basic concepts behind Autodesk, Inc.’s, explicit dynamics technology and explain why it is so well suited for highly nonlinear problems. We will cover the differences between implicit methods and explicit methods and explain when it is appropriate to use the explicit technology. You will learn how to obtain quasistatic solutions from the explicit dynamics method, and how to construct an appropriate model for analysis. We will cover the concepts of automatic time step selection inherent in explicit dynamics and the effect of mesh size on run times. We will present numerous examples to demonstrate how to set up a simulation and obtain results.

Target Audience
