Techniques are described for the transient dynamic analysis of nonlinear periodic structures. These techniques consider the special characteristics of periodic structures in conjunction with the pseudo-force approach using numerical integration to reduce computerized solution costs. Comparisons with a general purpose finite element code demonstrate the savings in solution costs.
