The article deals with the propagation of shock waves in thin isotropic plates. The solution is done analytically. The geometric model of Kirchhoff and Rayleigh was used for the solution. Material model was used Hook. The shock wave is induced by the impact of the punch into the centre of the plate. The longitudinal waves propagate in the x and y axis, the transverse wave propagates in the axis. Comparison of the longitudinal and transverse wave propagation of both models at selected points is made. Comparisons are displacements, velocities and tensions in x, y and z axis, depending on time. The rectangular plate is made of unidirectional rolled aluminium sheet of high purity. The plate is around the perimeter fixed. The MATLAB program was used to solve this problem
