On space and time step sizes in rectangular finite element meshes for ultrasonic pulse propagation = Stačiakampių baigtinių elementų tinklų impulsų sklidimui modeliuoti erdvės ir laiko žingsniai
Rimantas Barauskas.

The focus of the work is to analyse and improve the accuracy of space and time discretized rectangular finite element models for transient acoustic wave propagation. The propagation of the typical ultrasonic pulse excited on the boundary of the environment is under investigation. The dispersion relations of finite element models have been significantly improved by selecting appropriate form of the mass matrix. As a consequence, only 5 elements per wavelength suffice to represent satisfactory the wave propagation law. As contraindication for using such an approach is a non-diagonal form of the mass matrix requiring to use iterative methods for solving the linear algebraic equation system at each time step. However in 2D and 3D cases the increase of the element size results in considerable savings in memory and computational time even if iteration at each time step is necessary. With increased element size the accuracy requirement instead of stability is dominating for the selection of the time step
