Abstract : The case of wave propagation in a thick-walled elastic cylindrical shell subject to dynamically applied internal pressure is examined for various shell geometries and modes of application of the internal loading. Shells of both infinite as well as semi-infinite length are treated. In both cases the loading is considered to be axisymmetric. The investigation culminates in the determination of dynamic behavior of the thick shell subject to a band of constant intensity pressure moving at constant velocity along the inner surface of the shell. Displacement and strain components at any point in the shell may be evaluated in terms of dimensionless variables from the computer program presented. (Author)
