Abstract

The free vibration analysis of composite shallow conical shells, incorporating the effects of pretwist, is presented. The analysis focuses on shells made of symmetrically and unsymmetrically laminated E-glass/epoxy with four and eight-ply laminates. This method is valid, however, for any other composite with an arbitrary number of layers and fiber orientation. An extreanum energy principle is employed to drive the eigeenvalue equation and a flexible, global adminsssable function is developed to account for the genometoc boundary conditions.
