Abstract : The frequency equation for harmonic waves with an arbitrary number of circumferential modes traveling in traction-free circular cylindrical shells made of orthotropic material, established in the first part of this investigation has been programmed for numerical evaluation on an IBM 360/50 digital computer system. The numerical results are compared with those obtained on the basis of a shell theory. (Author)
