Among the time integration methods used in solid mechanics, Newmark family of algorithms (along with Galerkin finite element) has been most popular and gathered much attention over the years. Recently, time discontinuous Galerkin method (TDG) and discontinuous Galerkin method (DGM) are being investigated by the researchers due to their advantages in wave propagation. In this study TDG and DGM are combined to have space-time discontinuous Galerkin formulation.
