Extensive calculations have been performed with an electronic calculator to evaluate a problem in elasticity that simulates the effect of a cylindrical charge of high explosive detonated in intimate contact with a steel plate. The general method of calculation has been described in detail. Although elastic theory has been extrapolated into a regime where it is known not to apply, insight of a valuable general nature has been obtained on the nature of the negative component of the pulse.
