Structural dynamics is the study of how structures respond to loads that vary rapidly with time. This text focuses on linear elastic structures, explaining how to calculate/estimate the key dynamic properties of simple structures, and outlining principles used by finite element programs to analyse the dynamics of more complex structures.

The Essential Knowledge Series is a core resource (primarily for structural engineering students but a useful refresher for more senior engineers) covering fundamental topics from structural materials to computer analysis. Student Members and members of the Institution's Academic Community can download the series for free at: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge
