An explicit finite element analysis (FEA) solution for simulating short-duration events like impact and crash.


Dytran is a clear, finite element analysis (FEA) solution that lets you simulate short-duration events such as impacts and crashes and analyze the complex nonlinear behavior that structures undergo during these occurrences.

Effectively study the structural integrity of designs to ensure final products meet customer safety, reliability, and regulatory requirements.

Accurately examine potential triggers for product failure and predict responses to real-world events.

Utilize future-ready software that analyzes product accuracy

Effectively assess the precision and structural integrity of designs to ensure your final product meets important reliability, safety, and regulation requirements.

The benefits of using Dytran include:

Deliver real-world analysis of structural integrity

Dytran delivers material flow and FSI analysis in a single package. It boasts a unique coupling feature that enables integrated testing of structural components and the impact of fluids and highly deformed materials.

Features of Dytran include:


Fluid-structure interaction

Both Lagrangian and Eulerian solvers are available in Dytran, enabling consistent modeling of both structures and fluids while simulating interactions between the two.


CAE for manufacturing

Benefit from sheet metal forming and hot forging simulations, both of which can be easily and efficiently performed by Dytran.


Impact and drop test analysis

Dytran’s robust and high-performance code can seamlessly model impact and drop test analysis while factoring in complex contact phenomenon.
