Mesh import in Autodyn HELP!

Can anyone help me with this:
I made a geometry in AutoCAD, imported it in FE Modeler as .stl, exported as .nas (Nastran) and imported in Autodyn. I must apply to this geometry a concrete material and also I must import a .fil file regarding to simulate a blast in a cavity. I done the .fil file, but I don't know to combine these two parts. Can someone tell me how to do this?
Also I have an option to import the geometry in Autodyn as unstructured mesh from ICEM CFD (k file or exp).
Thanks a lot!

I don't know what to do!

I imported the mesh file from ICEM as k file, and this gave me 3 parts: 1 beam, 1 shell and 1 volume. I assigned to each of these parts a Rigid material with 2.5 mg/cm3 and then a Linear material via Initial Condition.
The blast is a TNT blast made following Urban blast tutorial. For this I made an Out Flow boundary, an Ideal gas part (air) and fill this part with TNT (like in the tutorial).
My explosion pass through walls and I really don't know what to do. :confused: :mad::confused:
I looked all over the net, but I can't find any answer.
So if here is anyone that can help me, please do!

Blast passing through wall
Make sure that you have Euler Lagrange Interaction turned on.

Thanks for your answer Bence, I'm working on it but I don't know the right settings. I'm testing now.
