ANSYS Announces Distribution Extension with Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC)

Collaboration Provides Best-of-Class Software Products for Explicit Solutions from ANSYS

SOUTHPOINTE, Pa., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANSYS, Inc.

(Nasdaq: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced a multi-year extension to its existing distribution agreement with Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC). Headquartered in Livermore, Ca., U.S.A., LSTC develops and markets LS-DYNA(R) software, a general-purpose transient dynamic finite element program capable of simulating complex real world problems. The long-term distribution commitment reinforces LS-DYNA technology as an integral part of the explicit simulation software suite from ANSYS, which also includes ANSYS(R) AUTODYN(R), an analysis tool for modeling the nonlinear dynamics of solids, fluids and gases as well as their interaction.

"With this long-term agreement, ANSYS will be able to continue to provide and extend its premiere explicit dynamics solutions," said Naury Birnbaum, general manager, explicit and offshore products at ANSYS, Inc. "Moreover, the integration of our explicit dynamics solution within the ANSYS Workbench environment allows engineers to take computer-aided designs to functional digital prototypes and perform simulations much more quickly than has been possible before. These powerful solutions from ANSYS greatly accelerate innovation and time to market for our customers."

Explicit dynamics analyses deal with extreme short-time durations (events that typically occur in less than a second), as well as high deformations, large strains, fractures or complete material failure. Explicit solutions involve applications in impact, blast, drop testing, bird strike, metal forming, crashworthiness and other high-speed phenomena. The explicit solutions from ANSYS provide mission-critical analysis for the defense, space, automotive, power and manufacturing industries.

ANSYS develops and distributes engineering simulation tools via the ANSYS(R) Workbench(TM) platform, which enables users to run sophisticated multidisciplinary simulations that include computational fluid dynamics (CFD), electromagnetic, explicit dynamics and mechanical stress analyses while utilizing a single geometry model. By streamlining the complete simulation process and integrating these tools as a unified suite of software, this technology removes the common difficulty of compatibility and file exchange found with stand-alone applications.

About Livermore Software Technology Corporation

Headquartered in Livermore, California, U.S.A., Livermore Software Technology Corporation develops, markets, and distributes LS-DYNA and a suite of related and supporting engineering software products. LSTC was founded in 1987 by John O. Hallquist to commercialize as LS-DYNA the public domain code that originated as DYNA3D. DYNA3D was developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, by LSTC's founder, John O. Hallquist.


ANSYS, Inc., founded in 1970, develops and globally markets engineering simulation software and technologies widely used by engineers and designers across a broad spectrum of industries. The Company focuses on the development of open and flexible solutions that enable users to analyze designs directly on the desktop, providing a common platform for fast, efficient and cost-conscious product development, from design concept to final-stage testing and validation. The Company and its global network of channel partners provide sales, support and training for customers. Headquartered in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., with more than 40 strategic sales locations throughout the world, ANSYS, Inc. and its subsidiaries employ approximately 1,400 people and distribute ANSYS products through a network of channel partners in over 40 countries.
