Abstract. Dynamic response of a rigid frame on a steel columns is investigated. Free motion of the structure when deformations in the columns are elastic is discussed. Motion of the structure after horizontal impact and blast loading is investigated and axial and transverse velocities after the impact are assessed. Interconnection of the axial and the transverse column forces in the elastic and elasto-plastic deformation regions are considered

Keywords: steel frame, impact, elaso-plastic deformations.
