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

<h4>Essential Knowledge Text No.16 Stability</h4>

Essential Knowledge Text No.16 Stability

Stability is one of two fundamental requirements of a structure, the other being equilibrium. Lack of stability during construction or service life can cause catastrophic structural failure. Stability is necessary against horizontal loads, asymmetric loading, out-of-plane loading and the effects of geometric imperfections, loading eccentricities and tolerances.

Essential Knowledge Text No.15 Approximate analysis of skeletal structures

Some form of approximate analysis remains essential for both the conceptual design of structures and verification of final (computer) analysis. This text presents simple approaches to the approximate analysis of two-dimensional skeletal structures.

Essential Knowledge Text No.14 Principles for computer analysis of structures

This text presents the 'reflective approach' to the computer analysis of structures, to ensure that the analysis model is a valid representation of the real structure and that the structural analysis has been carried out correctly.
