Included in this report are the analytical results of a plane strain large displacement analysis of a thin cylindrical shell subjected to nonuniform external pressure. The purpose of the analysis is to determine the ultimate load capacities and hence, the design margins of safety of the shell structure for .. both the static and the dynamic loading conditions. The finite element method was used to solve the numerical problem. For dynamic analysis, the implicit Houbolt operator was utilized to
