The central difference method is widely used for the numerical solution of the transient elastodynamics problems by the ﬁnite element method. The effectiveness of this explicit conditional stable direct time integration methods is limited by using diagonal mass matrix, which entails signiﬁcant computational savings and storage advantages. However, for the serendipity type element the construction of such diagonalized matrices is not uniquely deﬁned and various class of lumped mass matrices can be assembled. In this paper the stability analysis for the plane square serendipity ﬁnite element is performed for various class of lumped mass matrices. ´
