This paper is concerned with the initial response of a restricted class of thin elastic shells to localized transient loadings. Attention is restricted to those shells which are essentially spherical and shallow in a neighborhood of the loading. The initial response within this neighborhood can be approximated by the response of a (shallow) spherical shell segment to a concentrated force within the framework of a modified shallow-shell theory.
