I think Transient Structural would be a good choice. It uses an Implicit solver as opposed to Explicit Dynamics which, as the name suggests, uses an Explicit method. Explicit Dynamics is more appropriate when the scale of simulation is very small (say about 0.01-0.1 s), e.g. when simulating a case of car crash etc.

Transient Structural should work in your case.

Hope this helps,
