The axially symmetric pressure signal produced by the longitudinal impact of a semi-infinite elastic cylindrical shell upon a rigid obstacle is determined by using membrane theory. Using this simplified theory, it is possible to obtain not only the leading term of an asymptotic expansion for large values of time, but also additional terms.
