Rand Simulation Expands Portfolio With Ansys LS-Dyna Expertise
Expanding its LS-Dyna support capabilities, Rand SIM strengthened its structural analysis business unit, supporting those using Ansys technology for simulation, Rand SIM reports.
May 9, 2023
Rand Simulation (Rand SIM), an Ansys Elite Channel Partner and a division of Rand Worldwide, has entered into a partnership with Predictive Engineering to acquire its Ansys LS-Dyna (LS-Dyna) customer base and supplement in-house expertise to support customers using this technology. By expanding LS-Dyna consulting, training and support capabilities, Rand SIM has strengthened its structural analysis business unit and can support the part of the market that relies on this Ansys technology for its explicit simulation needs, Rand SIM reports.
“This partnership equips us to serve our new and existing LS-Dyna customers with the highest level of technical expertise in the industry,” says Jason Pfeiffer, vice president, Rand Simulation. “Our clients are always looking to make their products safer through the performance of non-linear and transient simulation analyses in areas such as crash, impact penetration, ballistics, etc. This expanded LS-Dyna expertise allows us to help them simulate real world problems using this robust, accurate and efficient tool.”
Rand SIM’s strategic expansion to include the LS-Dyna product and related consulting expertise was of note given that Dyna is now part of the Ansys portfolio and follows on the heels of the recent addition of a team focused on optics and photonics, according to the companies. The LS-Dyna skills complement existing engineering and design consulting services around the core physics of fluids, heat transfer, structures, electromagnetics, optics and photonics.
By building a specialized team of experienced LS-Dyna professionals, Rand SIM can help structural engineering teams predict how a prototype will respond to real-world events such as crashes, drops, earthquakes, impact and penetration, bird strikes and more, the companies note.
“It’s exciting to see first-hand how Rand Simulation is becoming stronger than the sum of their individual people and I look forward to accelerating their LS-Dyna expertise so that they can share the capabilities of this powerful tool across their broad base of customers,” says George Laird, Ph.D., president at Predictive Engineering.
