Investigating Performance of Aitken Accelerator in Dynamic Analysis by One-Dimensional Generalized

Document Type : Research Article



This article investigates the performance of Aitken accelerator in analysis by one-dimensional generalized subspace method. At first, it has dealt with non-linear dynamic analysis by generalized subspace technique and the necessity of extending analysis by this method. There after one-dimensional subspace procedure is presented. According to requirement of the process to iteration in each time step, the approach is modified with the help of Aitken accelerator.
Finally, the numerical examples, according to modified algorithm, are presented.
