This article investigates the vertical impact of an absolutely rigid body (indenter) on a membrane. The supersonic (initial) and subsonic stages of unsteady interaction are considered. The solution at the initial stage of contact interaction is reduced to solving a differential equation. A resolving system of equations was obtained for the problem at subsonic stage. The Green’s function for the membrane is found and a numerical-analytical algorithm is constructed to solve the system. The unknown functions calculation results are presented in the graph form.
