Abstract: Equations of motion that govern the inelastic, large deformations of circular membranes subjected to blast loadings are derived and solved numerically. Good correlation with experimental results and with results of a related analytical study were obtained. Investigations were made into the effects of the applied pressure distribution and edge restraint on the final mechanical state of the deformed membrane.
