Abstract : A finite difference procedure has been formulated for predicting the response of thin structural shells to severe transient loading which may induce large deflections and anelastic material behavior. A computer program, REPSIL, has been developed to facilitate use of this analytical procedure. To exemplify the application of this technique, the response of a cylindrical shell to a surface blast loading was predicted and found to be in satisfactory agreement with experimental data.
