In Part I1 of this paper we have established local stability and convergence criteria for the mixed explicit‐implicit finite element scheme and have shown that the proposed iterative method converges under certain conditions. Part II describes various practical aspects of the solution strategy such as convergence criteria for terminating the iterations, automatic control of time step size, reclassification of nodes from explicit to implicit during execution, estimation of time derivatives, and automatic adjustment of the implicit weight factor. Several examples are included to demonstrate certain aspects of the theory and illustrate the capabilities of the new approach.
