2004 (English)In: Computational Mechanics, ISSN 0178-7675 (Paper) 1432-0924 (Online), Vol. 34, no 2, 134-136 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A method for selective mass scaling in explicit finite element analyses of thin walled structures, modeled with solid elements, is introduced. The method aims at increasing the critical time step without significantly altering the dynamical response of the system. The proposed method is based on the exclusion of certain rigid body motions from the applied mass scaling by filtering the local velocity field.
