TL;DR: In this article, the free vibration analysis of thin conical shells under different boundary conditions is carried out using the element-free kp-Ritz method, and convergence studies are performed based on the influences of the support size and the number of nodes.

TL;DR: In this paper, the free vibration analysis of joined conical-cylindrical shells is presented, where the governing equations of vibration of a conical shell, including a cylindrical shell as a special case, are written as a coupled set of first order differential equations by using the transfer matrix of the shell.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a survey of the structural mechanics of composite materials, focusing on the macromechanical structural analysis of various structural elements, including response under conditions of stable static loading, buckling, and dynamics.
Abstract: Introduction T purpose of this Survey is to review and bring together in an orderly fashion some of the principal contributions to the field of structural mechanics of structures containing composite materials. The topics of micromechanics and fracture, while quite important, are not considered in this Survey. Emphasis is given to the macromechanical structural analysis of various structural elements, including response under conditions of stable static loading, buckling, and dynamics. The Survey unfolds in the following sequence: Straight and Curved Laminated Bars, Laminated Plates, Laminated Shells, Sandwich Structures, Applications to Practical Structural Systems, and Future Trends. The authors hope that this contribution will be a useful reference tool for researchers and engineers already involved in structural aspects of advanced composites, as well as for those who are just entering the field. No Survey can do full justice to such a wide field as compositematerial structural mechanics. The references cited give only a glimpse of the extensive literature in this field. The authors apologize for not citing a number of important contributions in the field.

TL;DR: In this article, an analysis of axisymmetric and unsymmetric free vibrations of conical or cylindrical shells with various boundary conditions is presented, where Love's first-approximation shell theory, with transverse shear strain added, was used and solutions were obtained by Galerkin's method.
