A structure-dependent integration method may experience an unusual overshooting behavior in the steady-state response of a high frequency mode. In order to explore this unusual overshooting behavior, a local truncation error is established from a forced vibration response rather than a free vibration response. As a result, this local truncation error can reveal the root cause of the inaccurate integration of the steady-state response of a high frequency mode. In addition, it generates a loading correction scheme to overcome this unusual overshooting behavior by means of the adjustment the difference equation for displacement. Apparently, these analytical results are applicable to a general structure-dependent integration method.
