A STUDY OF THE HIGHER MODAL DYNAMIC PLASTIC RESPONSE OF BEAMS

A theoretical and experimental investigation into the higher modal dynamic plastic response of fully clamped beams is reported herein. It is shown that the influence of geometry changes or finite-deflections is important. It appears that the higher modal response of beams is a more efficient means of absorbing a given magnitude of kinetic energy than a single modal response.
