The transient response of a thin sheet comprised of a rate-dependent solid is determined. The material is assumed to be incompressible, and the constitutive response is governed by a nonlinearly viscous power-law model. The sheet has axially symmetry, but an otherwise arbitrarily varying thickness. Axially symmetric, finite, dynamic motions of the sheet are identified.
