Pagination or Media Count:
The report examines questions of the interaction of plane nonstationary acoustic pressure waves with thin elastic shells immersed in an ideal fluid. Proposed are various approximate approaches for estimating the external hydrodynamic forces. The stressed and strained state of shells of revolution are considered when they are loaded with shock waves. Recommendations on the limits of applicability of the approximate calculation methods are presented.
