Computer implementation aspects and numerical evaluation of a new family of implicit-explicit finite element, transient algorithms are presented. It is shown that the new methods are easily coded, and may be introduced into many existing implicit, finite-element codes with only slight modification. Numerical tests confirm the theoretical stability and accuracy characteristics of the methods presented in a companion paper.
