Document Type: Journal Paper


Using a general bending theory of circular cylindrical shells under the influence of initial stress, simple but accurate expressions for the resonant frequency are presented. These expressions are applicable to a wide range of shell parameters. The results are compared with those of previous investigations. Experimental results are also given.
