The strength, cracking patterns and the other nonlinear dynamic behaviors of reinforced concrete roof-type circular cylindrical shells influenced by edge member stiffness and supporting conditions under impact loading are investigated. Nonlinear dynamic finite element procedures are applied to these study. The impact loading is dynamic concentrated one, that is applied to the center of shell surface. The results of this study are compared to ones under static concentrated loading, which were obtained by Authors' recent experiments. The interactions between the shell and the edge members are investigated.
