Conference paper


In dynamic analysis of structures carried on by dyscrete methods we often apply the finite element method in spatial partition and differential schemes in time integration. In this mean the partition of the structure, rather artifical, is performed once in the begining and concerns the whole time of computations. Such a limitation unables the solution of many problems.
