This survey opens with some introductory comments on the response of structures subjected to large dynamic loads which cause plastic behaviour. The rigid plastic method of analysis is then introduced, together with a few observations on the limitations and advantages of this simplified procedure. This is followed by a discussion of recent studies into the influence of transverse shear and rotatory inertia on the dynamic plastic stable response of beams and circular plates. The dynamic plastic buckling behaviour of various structural members and an idealised model is then examined in section 4. The review closes with a discussion and some concluding remarks.
