The dynamic stability of orthotropic cylindrical thin shells of exponentially variable geometric and mechanical parameters is studied by using Galerkin and Ritz type variotional methods. The qualitative and quantitative effects of the external geometry, material properties, and design features on the critical loads, corresponding wave numbers, and the dynamic factor are evaluated. Comparing results with those in the literature validates the present analysis.
