This Note concerns the use of the generalized Airy stress function, introduced by Radok [1], for dynamic plane-stress and plane-strain problems with axial symmetry. The solution of the basic equations for stress waves may be accomplished by Laplace transformation. The case of the dynamic elastic response of a thick cylinder to internal axial symmetric impact loads will be studied.
