ANSYS LS-DYNA vs LS-DYNA alone

ANSYS LS-DYNA vs LS-DYNA alone

(OP)
Hello all,

I would like to know if there is any list with the differences between ANSYS LS-DYNA and the Standalone LS-DYNA solvers.

Thanks

RE: ANSYS LS-DYNA vs LS-DYNA alone

There are many strategic differences. However, the exact same keyword deck (generated from ANSYS/LS-DYNA) will give you the same answer whether you solve it using ANSYS/LS-DYNA or LS-DYNA. My personal opinion is that you will become a better computational analyst if you learn how to use native LS-DYNA. But, if you are not comfortable with FEM, it is not suited for the faint-hearted i.e., user-friendliness isn't its strongest suite :)
