Abstract: The procedure for determining the elastic response of structures to transient loads in terms of the elastic normal modes is well known. Assuming ideal plasticity, Bleich and Salvadori recently proposed a method for obtaining the response beyond the elastic range in terms of elasto-plastic normal modes. They applied the method to free-free beams acted on by impulsive loads. In this paper, the method of Bleich and Salvadori is applied in general to two hinged and fixed rigid frames acted upon by a time dependent concentrated force at the knee and in particular to a two hinged frame (for which the elastic normal modes are known) and a linearly decaying forcing function.
