A theoretical analysis is presented in this paper to predict the dynamic plastic response of aluminium alloy and mild steel circular plates when struck normally by blunt solid cylindrical masses at the center. Reasonable agreement is obtained with experimental results for the permanent transverse displacements. Different failure mechanisms, which have been found in previous experimental studies on aluminium alloy and mild steel plates, are also illustrated by the proposed theory.
