Hello Ahmed,

Autodyn is an explicit analysis tool for modeling nonlinear dynamics of solids, fluids, gas, and their interaction. This analysis system supports the full range of Autodyn capabilities including the Explicit Eulerian solvers, mesh free SPH solvers, and explicit solver coupling (FSI).

Here’s an introductory Ansys Innovation Course on time domain dynamic problems. However, you need to decide which solver best suits for your problem. Explicit or Implicit?. Transient structural uses Implicit solver and Explicit dynamics(Autodyn) uses Explicit solver.

Here are couple of Ansys help document links which will make you familiarise with Autodyn workflow and GUI.
