We propose a new method to extract the collective masses and momenta associated with a given set of collective coordinates, along a dynamical microscopic mean-field evolution. We apply our method to the symmetric fission of 258Fm nucleus, and analyze the dynamical evolution of the system in the collective space. We compare, between the dynamical and the adiabatic paths, the force acting on the quadrupole degree of freedom, which is closely related to the relative distance between fragments. It is shown that dynamical effects beyond the adiabatic limit are important for formation and scission of the neck between emitted fragments.
