Manual interface LS-Dyna and MATLAB

Ken Spranghers, Hugo Sol (Editor), David Lecompte (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The goal of this manual is to give an introduction to build a data interface between the finite elements software LS-Dyna and the numerical computing environment MATLAB. A case study is used to illustrate the working principle of this interface.
In this case study the dynamic behaviour of aluminium plates subjected to close range blast loads is investigated. Measurement of the full deformation field is performed combining two high-speed cameras in a stereoscopic set up and the digital image correlation technique. The measured deformation fields are compared to the calculated data obtained from the numerical simulation in LS-Dyna.
