Dytran™ 2012 is the latest and most comprehensive version of Dytran released by MSC.Software,
bringing new simulation technology and improved performance.

Dytran 2012 includes major new capabilities that are primarily focused in the areas of High Performance
Computing (HPC) for fluid-structure interaction (FSI) applications resulting in dramatic performance
improvement for CPU intensive simulations. These are:

  • Distributed Memory Parallel (DMP) support for FSI applications with Adaptive Meshing and load balancing.
  • DMP support for importing Euler Archive files for subsequent situations
  • DMP Improvements for Coupling and output generation
  • Enhancements to FFCONTR to initialize air pressure inside the fluid filled bottles
  • MESH,BOX is enhanced to create Eulerian meshes in a user-defined local coordinate system. In the previous releases, the creation of Eulerian meshes was limited to global coordinate system using the MESH,BOX entry.
  • Output requests were extended to include “ALL” specifiers to generate time history output for all materials, all Lagarangian material, and all Eulerian material.
