The dynamic response of cylindrical and conical panels subjected to arbitrary time-varying load distributions is studied and appropriate equations are presented. Convenient trigonometric series are used, in conjunction with finite-difference methods, to reduce the governing equations to sets of matrix equations. The numerical solution procedure involves time integration, using an unconditionally stable implicit (Houbolt) scheme, together with a Gaussian elimination technique particularly suited to the banded matrices involved. Calculated results treat the effects of conicity and various support conditions on the structural response. Individual cases show quantitatively how cylindrical panel response is more sensitive than that of conical panels to changes in edge restraint.
