Field  Contents  SI Unit Example 

Keyword3  Time step control type:
If Keyword3 is not specified, that is, /DT/SPHCEL, then the shell elements will use the $\text{\Delta}{T}_{\mathrm{min}}$ is not used. 

$\text{\Delta}{T}_{sca}$  Scale factor on time step for option SPHCEL.  
$\text{\Delta}{T}_{\mathrm{min}}$  Minimum time step for option SPHCEL. 
Comments
 This option can be used with the
/DT/NODA. In such case, the criteria for deleting a
SPH cell (or stopping, or killing the computation) is:$$\text{\Delta}{T}_{\mathit{sca}}\cdot \sqrt{\frac{2m}{{K}^{*}}}\le \text{\Delta}{t}_{\mathrm{min}}$$
with ${K}^{*}$ being the stiffness based on SPH interaction.
 Nodal time step is generally more robust.
