AIAA JOURNAL Vol. 37, No. 11, November 1999 Technical Notes TECHNICAL NOTES are short manuscripts describing new developments or important results of a preliminary nature. These Notes cannot exceed 6 manuscript pages and 3 figures; a page of text may be substituted for a figure and vice versa. After informal review by the editors, they may be published within a few months of the date of receipt. Style requirements are the same as for regular contributions (see inside back cover). Vibration of Thermally Stressed Composite Cylinders Lazarus Tenek* University of Stuttgart, D-70569 Stuttgart, Germany I. Introduction C OMPOSITE cylinders represent the skeleton and body of mod- ern high-performance aircraft and naval structures. They are also used in civil engineering structures as storage tanks and in mechanical engineering industries as boilers, water purifying de- vices, etc. For efficient design, the vibration characteristics of such shell structures is of paramount importance. In many cases, these structures must operate in high or low temperatures that alter the me- chanical characteristics of such structures. Therefore, it is important to predict their vibration characteristics when composite cylinders
