The combination of Flüggeʼs shell theory, the transfer matrix approach and the Romberg integration method are used to investigate the free vibration behaviour of stepped orthotropic cylindrical shells. The hoop step on the shell surface is described by a reduced thickness over part of its circumference. Modal displacements of the shell can be described by trigonometric functions and Fourierʼs approach is used to separate the variables. The vibration equations of the shell are reduced to eight first-order differential equations in the circumferential coordinate, and by using the transfer matrix of the shell, these equations can be written in a matrix differential equation. The transfer matrix is derived from the non-linear differential equations of the cylindrical shells by introducing the trigonometric functions in the longitudinal direction and applying the numerical integration in the circumferential direction. The proposed model is used to get the vibration frequencies and the corresponding mode shapes for symmetrical and antisymmetrical type-modes. Computed results indicate the sensitivity of the frequency parameters and the bending deformations to the geometry of stepped shell, and also to the axial and circumferential rigidities of the shell.
