How can I apply an acceleration time history to the big mass
when using the Big Mass Method in a mode-superposition transient?

Ordinarily the mass is excited by a force equal to the acceleration
times the big mass, but a more convenient way is to apply the acceleration
directly with the CMACEL command which can be used to apply an
acceleration to an element component consisting of just the big mass.
