Abstract

The most significant advances over the sixty years relative to the Dynamic Relaxation applications in structural engineering are summarized. Emphasized are given towards plates, form finding, cable structures, dynamic analysis, and other applications. The role of DR solver in the linear and non-linear analyses is discussed. This investigation is undertaken to explain the application of the solution technique to the static, dynamic and stability problems. The influence of the methods on the use of isotropic and composite materials, such as orthotropic and laminated ones, is briefly covered. Critical analyses and suggestions regarding future research and applications will be presented.
