Efficient explicit time stepping for the eXtended finite element method (X-FEM). (English) Zbl 1128.74045
Summary: This paper focuses on the introduction of a lumped mass matrix for enriched elements, which enables one to use a pure explicit formulation in X-FEM applications. A proof of stability for one- and two-dimensional cases is given. We show that if one uses this technique, the critical time step does not tend to zero as the support of the discontinuity reaches the boundaries of the elements. We also show that the X-FEM element’s critical time step is of the same order as that of the corresponding element without extended degrees of freedom.
