An orthotropic right cylindrical shell is analyzed when subjected to a discontinuous, finite length pressure load moving in the axial direction at constant velocity. The analysis utilizes linear, small deflection shell theory which includes transverse shear deformations, and external radial damping. The problem is solved using Fourier transforms. The inverse Fourier integrals are evaluated for the radial deflection, axial deflection and rotation by expanding the characteristic equation in partial fractions. The behavior of load velocity loci is studied for variations in material moduli and thickness to radius ratio. The deflection response is investigated.
