A theoretical investigation is undertaken into the dynamic instability of complete spherical shells which are loaded impulsively and made from a rigid-plastic material. The threshold velocities for the rigid-plastic spherical shells are larger than those for cylindrical shells having the same R/h ratios and material parameters, while the critical mode numbers are similar.
