This paper treats the large-amplitude radial oscillations of a perfectly elastic, incompressible cylindrical tube of infinite length due to suddenly applied pressures on its lateral surfaces. The motion is studied for materials with essentially arbitrary strain-energy density. Sufficient conditions for periodic motions and a formula for the period of oscillation are given in terms of the strain energy. The results are specialized to the case of a rubberlike material of Mooney type, and asymptotic formulas are given for the case of a thin shell and for the case of small applied pressure.
