The modal response method applied to the linear and nonlinear dynamic analysis of cable networks. Three sample networks are analyzed and comparisions with the solutions obtained by the dynamic form of the displacement method of structural analysis are made. It is found that for many cable networks the modal response method is a satisfactory analysis procedure; however, there are structures for which its use will not lead to any efficient use of computer time.
