The most obvious and spectacular features of underwater explosions are the disturbances of the water surface above the charge. The overall hydrodynamic phenomena involved in this process are extremely complicated. Much of the present knowledge and understanding of this field was acquired because of the demands and the few available discussions of the subject have become inadequate or obsolete. This paper evaluates and proceeds on simulation ability of shallow depth explosion plume by MSC.Dytran

Also in this paper, numerical studies of explosion plume which includes contours of the plume (plume height, plume width and plume thickness) are investigated in details and compared with the relative literature's empirical methodology. The studies presented in this paper attempt to supply a reasonable comprehensive account, which will be used for workers in the field of underwater explosion and others who are interested in the water Barrier Defense.
