We support LS-DYNA and LS-OPT users in Germany, Austria, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Turkey and eastern neighboring countries of Germany. Our services include support, sales, development, process integration, training, and consulting.

DYNAmore is dedicated to support engineers to solve non-linear mechanical problems numerically. Our tools to model and solve the problems are the finite element software LS-DYNA as solver and LS-OPT for optimization. With 85 engineers in Europe we sell, teach, support, and co-develop the software and provide engineering services.
