Paper, 'Note on the free vibrations of an infinitely long cylindrical shell' by Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt]

Reference number: PP/13/26

Date: 1889

Description

Strutt writes: 'In a recent memoir Mr Love has considered this question among others; but he has not discussed his result [equation (95)], except in its application to a rather special case involving the existence of a free edge. When the cylinder is regarded as infinitely long, the problem is naturally of a simpler character; and I have thought that it might be worthwhile to express more fully the frequency equation, as applicable to all vibrations, independent of the thickness of the shell, which are periodic with respect both to the length and the circumference of the cylinder.'
