In this paper, dynamic response of composite cylindrical shells subjected to shock loading is studied analytically. The equations of motion are based on Sanders theory of thin shell. The effects of transverse shear deformation and rotatory inertia are taken into account. The circular cylindrical thin shell with simply supported ends is subjected to a shock load, represented by an axially symmetric moving load at a constant speed along the longitudinal direction. The governing equations are solved analytically using the Assumed-Modes Method. The influences of geometrical parameters and composite material properties of circular cylindrical shells on the dynamic response are studied.
