VPS Explicit - PAM-CRASH I - Grundlagen (Basics)

Description:

For an efficient and successful working with VPS/PAM-CRASH a solid understanding of the basic algorithms of an explicit code as well as of the essential program options are necessary. Therefore, after a short overview on the history of crash simulation and on the general capabilities of VPS/PAM-CRASH, the course will give an introduction on how to solve structural problems with explicit time integration. Subsequently all options will be explained which are required to perform a standard crash simulation. The course is accompanied by exercises.

Audience:

Engineers that use VPS/PAM-CRASH to solve dynamic structural problems.

Objectives:

Understand the basic aspects of crash simulations and how to use PAM-CRASH for them.

Prerequisites:

Basic knowledge of Finite Element Method is beneficial.
