Abstract

The present paper deals with the simulation of the nonlinear and time dependent be- haviour of complex structures in engineering. To overcome the limiting factors of such computer simulations - the computer run time and the memory requirement - we use an dynamic-explicit time integration procedure for the solution of the semi- discrete equations of motion, which is very well suited for parallel processing. At first we give a brief review of the theoretical background of the mechanical modelling and the dynamic-explicit technique for the solution of the semi-discrete equations of motion. Then the concept of parallelisation is discussed. 1 Introduction The growing demand for sophisticated simulations of
