Although the Chen–Ricles (CR) explicit method (CRM) (proposed by Chen and Ricles) has been claimed to have desired numerical properties, such as unconditional stability, explicit formulation, and second-order accuracy, it also shows some unusual properties, such as a less accuracy of solving highly nonlinear systems, a high-frequency overshoot in steady-state responses, and a weak instability. A correction scheme by adjusting the displacement difference equation with a loading term can be employed to extinguish the high-frequency overshoot in steady-state responses. However, there is still no way to get rid of the weak instability and to improve the less accuracy of solving highly nonlinear systems. It is recognized that a weak instability might result in inaccurate solutions or numerical explosions. Hence, the practical applications of CRM are strictly limited.
