Time Scaling Factor - Abaqus/Explicit

Im using the Abaqus/Explicit and I have some questions about the time period.

I know that the time period is the time of the event being simulated but

How should I define the time scaling factor?. The time scaling factor is the n defined in the Analysis users Manual?

Are there any formula to calculate the time scaling factor If I know the time period?

Ive been reading the manual and Its no so clear with this factor.

Thanks in Advance.

Time scaling is the same as mass scaling for explicit simulations. The recommendation is typically to use as little mass scaling as possible since it can change the dynamics (inertia) of the problem.

The max time scaling you can apply is problem specific.
