Abstract:

Theoretical solutions are developed herein for the dynamic plastic structural response of some ideal fibre-reinforced beams with boundary conditions and external dynamic loadings which can be reproduced easily and reliably in a laboratory. The theoretical behavior of these beams is also compared to the corresponding dynamic response of rigid perfectly plastic isotropic beams. Generally speaking, it appears that the permanent transverse deflections and response durations of ideal fibre-reinforced beams loaded dynamically are less than the corresponding values for similar rigid perfectly plastic isotropic beams.
