In this third and last sequence paper we focus on developing a model to simulate bird-strike events using Lagrange and Arbitrary Lagrange Eulerian (ALE) in LS-DYNA. We developed a standard work for the two-and three-dimensional models for bird-strike events. We modeled the bird as a cylinder ﬂuid and the fan blade as a plate. The case study was that of frontal impact of soft-bodies on rigid plates based on the Lagrangian Bird Model. Results show very good agreement with available test data and within 7% error when compared with the Lagrange and SPH methods. The developed ALE approach is suitable for bird-strike events in tapered plates.
