Corporate Profile

Head­quar­tered in Liv­er­more, Cal­i­for­nia, Liv­er­more Soft­ware Tech­nol­o­gy Cor­po­ra­tion (LSTC) de­vel­ops 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.

LSTC’s head­quar­ters com­pris­es three build­ings that house of­fices, meet­ing rooms, and a state-of-the-art train­ing room with au­dio and video equip­ment.

A team of en­gi­neers, math­e­mati­cians, and com­put­er sci­en­tists are en­gaged in the de­vel­op­ment of LS-DY­NA, LS-Pre­Post, LS-OPT, LS-TaSC (Topol­o­gy), and LSTC's Dum­my & Bar­ri­er mod­els for use in var­i­ous in­dus­tries, in­clud­ing Au­to­mo­bile De­sign, Aero­space, Man­u­fac­tur­ing, and Bio­engi­neer­ing. LS-DY­NA de­vel­op­ment is fo­cused on one code method­ol­o­gy that in­cludes Im­plic­it, Ex­plic­it, SMP and MPP solvers. It is op­ti­mized on all plat­forms in­clud­ing clus­ters run­ning Unix, Lin­ux, and Win­dows op­er­at­ing sys­tems.

LSTC is fo­cused on tech­ni­cal ex­cel­lence and sup­port. The world­wide growth of the LS-DY­NA user base is at­trib­ut­able to both the qual­i­ty of LSTC's soft­ware and the ex­tra­or­di­nary ef­forts reg­u­lar­ly made by the tech­ni­cal staff to en­sure cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

With re­gard to LS-DY­NA pric­ing, LSTC con­sis­tent­ly of­fers a more com­pet­i­tive prod­uct be­cause 90% of the work force is sole­ly ded­i­cat­ed to tech­ni­cal en­deav­ors. LSTC di­rects its re­sources to­wards pro­duc­ing high qual­i­ty soft­ware and sup­port­ing li­censee's projects.
