A brief review of linear waves and dynamic behavior of both periodic and near-periodic structures is presented in this paper. Emphasis is placed on a summary of more recent studies of engineering structures subject to wave motion and the effects of near-periodicity on their dynamic behavior. Conclusions drawn regarding linear waves and dynamics serve as a foundation for further investigation into the area of nonlinear waves and dynamics of these structures.
