Turn deformable parts into rigid bodies

From Solver Engine revision 6.0.708 there is a new command *PETRIFY. It is used to temporarily or permanently turn deformable parts into rigid bodies. Elements in rigid bodies will not affect the critical time step size and the command is typically used to reduce the computational cost.
