In the present chapter time transient analysis is presented for Timoshenko beams and laminated FSDT plates. The theoretical background mainly focuses on how to implement linear time transient analysis in numerical methods, therefore the reader should refer to chapters 10 and 14 for the beam and plate theories and implementation, respectively.
