VariableDescription
entype Entity type

enid Entity identification number
$sf$ Mass scaling factor

Description

Selective mass scaling functionality, as decribed by Olovsson et al. (2005). The critical time step of an element is:

$\Delta t_c = \sqrt{1 + sf} \cdot \Delta t_{c0}$

where $\Delta t_{c0}$ is the critical time step without mass scaling.
