This paper examines the effects of axial geometric imperfections on the fundamental vibration frequencies of cross-ply simply-supported oval cylindrical shells. It is found that the presence of such imperfection with small amplitudes may significantly raise or lower the fundamental frequencies, depending on the wave numbers of the imperfection and vibration mode. The effects of oval eccentricity, bending-stretching coupling of the material, the reduced-Batdorf parameter and Young’s moduli ratio are examined. It appears that the present problem has not been examined, even in the simplified case of oval cylindrical shells made of isotropic-homogeneous material.
