Abstract : This report treats the axisymmetric vibration of thin elastic shells. Estimates of natural frequencies and mode shapes are obtained for a general class of thin shells by applying the approximations obtained in a previous paper by one of the authors. Numerical results are obtained for ellipsoidal shells, and one new theoretical result is found. (Author)
