A numerical procedure is presented for the solution of the dynamic response of a moderately thick circular cylindrical panel within the framework of the improved shell theory which includes effects of transverse shear and rotatory inertia. Application was made to determine the transient response of panels to a time-varying normal load uniformly distributed over the entire panel surface. The results were compared with the findings based on the classical shell theory. Noteworthy differences between the two theories were observed. The effect of the edge constraints on the dynamic behavior of the panel was also examined. Author
