The Unimportance of the Spurious Root of Time Integration Algorithms for Structural Dynamics


Most commonly used second-order-accurate, dissipative time integration algorithms for structural dynamics possess a spurious root. For an algorithm to be accurate, it has been suggested that the spurious root must be small and ideally be zero in the low-frequency limit. In the paper we show that good accuracy can be achieved even if the spurious root does… (More)
