Document Type: Journal Paper


Finite difference method is presented; design of structure to with-stand h-p loadings of transient or time dependent nature such as nuclear blasts, requires abandoning conventional requirement of limiting stresses to some value below elastic limit; plastic flow at various locations in structure is permitted, but total deflection must be kept within acceptable limits.
