ansys buys ls-dyna - thoughts?

ansys buys ls-dyna - thoughts?

RE: ansys buys ls-dyna - thoughts?

Hang on to your wallet. ANSYS is a public company and I think they'll steadily start increasing the price.

RE: ansys buys ls-dyna - thoughts?

Ansys will kill Lsdyna. The only thing Ansys done up to now is to change interface with lots of bugs.

RE: ansys buys ls-dyna - thoughts?

I agree. Prices will go up gradually over time.

ANSYS thinks they bought an explicit car crash code; they have no clue how far ahead Dyna's implicit solver is in the marketplace today in addition to its strongly coupled multiphysics capabilities. My worry is that ANSYS will screw it up by milking Dyna hard to gain entry in the automotive and aerospace sectors. I just hope they do not distract the developers and break the code into pieces.

I am tired of using stagnated codes like ANSYS/Mechanical, Abaqus, .. .. they just keep making superficial changes to the interface and minor improvements here and there. If ANSYS breaks Dyna, I will end up switching to ADINA (and wait until Klaus-Jurgen decides to become a zillionaire) or some other open source code (which will lose steam at some point).

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
