The effect of two-dimensional regular finite-difference mesh spacings on the accuracy of calculation of the dynamic axisymmetric stress-strain state and strength of hollow composite cylinders of finite length, fixed overall dimensions and thickness has been numerically determined by the Wilkins method modified for helical orthotropy and implemented in an application package, created earlier by the authors. The cylinders were made by a ribbon consisting of VMPS glass fibers, impregnated with an ÉDT-10 epoxy binder, on a technological mandrel. Loading is done by exploding a spherical explosive charge in the center of symmetry of a cylinder in an air atmosphere. The obtained results allow one to choose mesh spacings along the radial and axial coordinates, which ensure an acceptable accuracy of determination of the maximum values of hoop stresses and strains, as well as strength functions by maximum stress and strain criteria and by the generalized von Mises criterion.
