The theory of thick orthotropic shells is used here to analyze a cylinder subjected to dynamic loads. The formulation includes shear deformation and rotatory inertia effects similarly to the first-order, shear deformation, laminated plate theory. Dynamic line loads (along the longitudinal direction) and patch loads are considered. The time-dependent part of the load is a step pulse or a half-sine wave.
