Asymmetric free vibrations of layered truncated conical shells are studied. Individual layers made of special orthotropic materials and both symmetric and asymmetric stacking with respect to the middle surface are considered. An energy-method based on the Rayleigh-Ritz procedure is employed. The influence of layer arrangements and that of the coupling between bending and stretching on the natural frequencies and mode-shapes are analyzed. Experimental results from tests on two shell models are provided for comparison with theoretical predictions. Numerical results based on extensive parametric studies are presented.
