Using a building block approach and starting with a single element, expressions for the energy of various two-dimensional frametype gridwork configurations are derived. These are then used to develop energy equivalent continua for the grid-works. Equations of motion and associated boundary conditions are obtained for the continua. Some dynamic characteristics of these continua are investigated and compared with corresponding results obtained from finite element codes and also with some available theoretical predictions.
