Abstract : The dynamic response of orthotropic circular cylindrical shells subjected to exponentially decaying uniform radial pressures is considered. The initial values of the pressures applied are slightly larger than the corresponding static collapse pressures of the shells obtained on the basis of Trescas yield criterion. The maximum kinematically admissible deflections for a cantilever shell as well as a shell clamped at both ends are presented for various values of the shell parameter. (Author)
