Method is capable of application to structures of any degree of complication, with any relationship between force and displacement, from linear elastic behavior through various degrees of inelastic behavior or plastic response, up to failure; any type of dynamic loading, due to shock or impact, vibration, earthquake, or nuclear blast can be considered; use of high-speed digital computers.
