In this paper, a new methodology for solving response of a spherical shell based on developed solution structure theorem has been proposed. It can be used to solve the wave equation about the structural dynamic response of a spherical shell under the impact pressure. The proposed method can be used to solve a batch of partial differential equations having the similar governing equation with different initial and boundary conditions. A detailed solving procedure has been provided to show how to use this method correctly. Finally, a practical example is provided to show how to use the proposed method to solving the elastodynamic response of a spherical shell under inner impact load.
