A RATIONALIZATION OF MODE APPROXIMATIONS FOR DYNAMICALLY LOADED RIGID-PLASTIC STRUCTURES BASED ON A SIMPLE MODEL

A simple two degrees of freedom viscoplastic beam is considered. The dynamic response of the model to impulsive and constant loading is plotted in the space in a manner which illustrates methods by which the response can be approximated. The generalization of the results to continuous structures is discussed.
