The present paper describes the parallel algorithm for explicit
time integration with efficient nonlocal material model support,
within the framework of finite element method.
A central difference method is used to discretize equation in time and
the application of both dual partitioning techniques (node-cut and
element-cut) is discussed. The efficiency of the proposed algorithm is
demonstrated by 3D analysis on a PC cluster.
