An Introduction to the LS-DYNA Smoothed Particle Galerkin Method for Severe Deformation and Failure Analyses in Solids


This paper presents a new particle method in LS-DYNA for the severe deformation and failure analyses of solid mechanics problems. The new formulation is first established following a standard meshfree Galerkin approach for a solving of the partial differential equation of linear elastic problems. A smoothed displacement field is introduced to the Galerkin… (More)
