Abstract: The buckling of laminated orthotropic cylindrical thin shells under torsion, which is a linear function of time, has been investigated. First, fundamental relations and the modified Donnell type stability equations of the laminated cylindrical thin shells are derived. Applying Galerkin's method, a differential equation having a variable coefficient depending on time is obtained and by applying the Ritz-type variational method to these equations, general formulas for static and dynamic critical loads, corresponding wave numbers and the dynamic factor are obtained. Finally after performing the computations, the effects of the variations of the numbers and ordering of layers, loading speed, and the ratio of radius to thickness on the critical parameters are investigated.
