    Behavior and peculiarities of failure of frame structures under dynamic loading are studied on the basis of computer modeling. The advantages of the Movable Cellular Automata (MCA) method allow to study all stages of the fracture process from damages generation to the complete failure. A possibility of the effect of elastic energy accumulation in complex structures is shown.
