Torsional vibration of an orthotropic Cylindrical Shell

  • 34 Accesses


This paper is concerned with the determination of torsional vibration of an orthotropic Cylindrical Shell assuming the elastic constants to be proportional to thenth power of the distance from the axis of the shell. The solution is obtained in terms of Bessel functions.
