The dynamic response of a circular, elastic shell in plane strain, when given an impulsive radial load, is studied. Inextensional bending is assumed and approximate solutions are obtained for the behavior at the wavefronts and for some time after the wave has passed. The method of Friedlander as applied by Payton to shells is used to study the wave propagation for relatively long times, and the bending moment distribution is obtained.
