In the motion of an elastic cylindrical shell following impulsive pressure, marked deviations from linear theory may occur through interaction of circumferential membrane force with flexural curvature. Energy is transferred to flexural modes of rather high order. The resulting flexural stress is significantly higher than that given by linear theory.
