Abstract : An explicit and rapidly convergent numerical scheme is presented for the solution of the longitudinal impact of a cylindrical, elastic, membrane shell. The response previously obtained by another numerical procedure is reproduced with much shorter computation times, and the numerical solution is extended to larger values of time after impact.
