A method for the determination of finite deflections of flexible elasto-visco-plastic plates under dynamic impulsive loading is given. The energetic visco-plastic model is adopted for the description of the material behaviour. Velocities and stress resultants are determined by using the Finite System Method (FSM). The results of the calculations, concerning square and circular plates, are presented as an illustration.
