An energy rate balance is employed to develop the incremental equations of motion for a shock loaded, inelastically constrained rigid-body structural system. Lagrangian multipliers provide the coupling mechanism necessary to reduce the overall system of equations to a set of modified rigid-body equations which include the nonlinear geometric and structural material effects. Kinematic material hardening and a modified yield criteria are used. Examples illustrate the technique and are compared with experimental results.
