LS-DYNA is a general purpose transient dynamic finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. LS-DYNA is provided by the Livermore Software Technology Corporation.
Installed on blacklight.
- Create a batch job containing commands to:
- Use the module command in a batch job.
- Load the appropriate ls-dyna module.
module load ls-dynaloads the module for the default version of ls-dyna. There are multiple versions available. Typing
module avail ls-dynalists the available versions. Choose the appropriate module for the version you want to use. For example, to use version 971-R5.0, type
module load ls-dyna/971-R5.0
- Run ls-dyna.
Each version has more than one executable available. Be sure to choose the right executable for your needs. To check which executables are available for a given version, first load the module for that version, then type
which executableYou will get a message displaying the path to the executable, if it exists. If it does not, you will get an error message starting with "no executable in" followed by a list of directories that were checked.
Executable names are found in the table below. In general, mpp-dyna or hyb-dyna may be faster than ls-dyna in parallel.

(only in v 5.1.1 and later)
- Submit the job with the qsub command.
