Abstract:

The stringent design requirements of modern aerospace vehicles have resulted in continuing demands for improvement of methods for structural dynamic analysis. Improved capabilities in this area will arise from increased analytical capability, more extensive techniques for structural synthesis and integration, and from efficient utilization of improvements in computer hardware. In this study attention has been given to three areas 1 a review of the current state-of-the-art of structural dynamic analysis 2 a discussion of the areas where attention should be concentrated to advance the present state-of-the-art, with particular attention given to those critical problem areas requiring long-term research and 3 a discussion of the current and future developments in computer hardware. Particular attention is given to the exciting new field of computer graphics. It is anticipated that the field of active computer graphics will have tremendous impact on methods of structural dynamic analysis. Author
