An experiment was performed to study the effects of an underwater explosion on a submerged test panel. This is a part of an on-going research project sponsored by the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA) to help predict the dynamic responses of naval structural members due to underwater shocks. An important element of this thesis was to validate a finite element/finite central difference computer code developed to forecast shell responses. Emphasis was placed upon attaining stiffener tripping and collecting invaluable dynamic flat plate tripping data.
