Abstract : The report states the equations which govern vibrations of thin, circular cylindrical shells which are subjected to pressurization. The basic assumptions are: (1) Pressurization is of such magnitude as to eliminate wall bending as a significant stiffness element. (2) Deflections are small enough to allow use of a linearized system of equations. (3) Material of the walls is isotropic and obeys Hooke's law. On the basis of the stated system of differential equations, a solution of the vibration problem is given for an infinite shell.
