TDET Detonation time.

Default = 0.0 (Real)

[ s ]
mat_ID Explosive material number concerned by detonation time.

All /MAT/LAW5 (JWL) material law are affected by the detonation time.


node_ID1 Node identifier defining ignition coordinates.  


  1. It is possible to define multiple detonation points.
  2. If a detonation point is not defined, JWL material law will instantaneously detonate.
  3. Detonation times are available in the Starter output file (IPRI ≥ 3).
  4. Burn fractions are available in time history file with /TH/BRIC card and BFRAC keyword.
  5. node_ID is mandatory.
