Theoretical solutions are developed herein for the dynamic plastic structural response of some ideal fibre-reinforced (strongly anisotropic) beams with boundary conditions and external dynamic loadings which can be reproduced easily and reliably in a laboratory. The theoretical behavior of these beams is also compared to the corresponding dynamic response of beams which are made from a rigid perfectly plastic isotropic material. Generally speaking, it appears that the permanent transverse deflections and response durations of ideal fibre-reinforced beams loaded dynamically are less than the corresponding values for similar rigid perfectly plastic isotropic beams.
