A three-dimensional (3D) method of analysis is presented for determining the free vibration frequencies of clamped, complete (not truncated) conical shells of revolution in which the bottom edges are normal to the midsurface of the shells based upon the circular cylindrical coordinate system using the Ritz method. A convergence study is presented. The frequencies from the present 3D analysis are compared with those from other 3D methods and 2D thin shell theory.
