Asymptotic short-time and long-time solutions are derived in closed form for spherical wave propagation in infinite plastic locking medium; various types of time-varying pressures are applied to surface of spherical cavity which include constant pressure, center of dilatation, adiabatic gas expansion, and energy input to exploding point mass.
