Dytran™ is a three-dimensional analysis code for analyzing the dynamic, nonlinear behavior of solid
components, structures, and fluids. It uses explicit time integration and incorporates features that
simulate a wide range of material and geometric nonlinearity.

Once you have an Dytran input file, always run a data check before running the main analysis. A data
check performs the following tasks:

•Reads and checks the input file.
•Sorts out the data and prints any error or warning messages.
•Performs two time steps.

No action is required to carry out a data check, since it is the default option for all new analyses. Carefully
check the output to ensure that the model is correct.
The importance of checking your input data cannot be overemphasized. The nonlinear, dynamic nature
of Dytran analyses requires large amounts of computer resources. Dytran can also analyze models that
might be rejected by other codes. Input errors can be both expensive and time consuming. A little extra
time spent thoroughly checking the data is well worth it in the long term.
