In this paper, a general method of time dimension discretization based on the idea of finite element is presented for dynamic analysis. Two kinds of recurrent formulations are derived in detail. The stable conditions, which is most important obviously, are discussed and the optimal selection of parameter that strongly affect the stability and accuracy of scheme is proposed.
