LS-DYNA is an Ansys application for which a license has been purchased by Engineering Faculty. Please do not use this module unless you have explicit permission to do so.

Start by loading the module

module load ls-dyna

Start the software by specifying at least the input and output files, but providing the ncpu and memory parameters is also a good idea.

ls-dyna I=000_yaris_dynamic_roof_crush_01.k O=newout.out ncpu=48 memory=10G

By default the ls-dyna is linked the to double-precision version of the software. To use the single-precision version, use the ‘ls-dyna-single’ command.

If you expect the job to take some time, you should start it in a screen or use the cluster. Cluster instructions with MPI will be available soon.
