– Study on the vibration of cylindrical shell made of a functionally gradient material (FGM) composed of stainless steel and nickel is presented. The effects of the FGM configuration are studied by studying the frequencies of two FGM cylindrical shells. Type I FGM cylindrical shell has Nickel on its inner surface and stainless steel on its outer surface and Type II FGM cylindrical shell has stainless steel on its inner surface and nickel on its outer surface. The study is carried out based on third order shear deformation shell theory. The objective is to study the natural frequencies, the influence of constituent volume fractions and the effects of configurations of the constituent materials on the frequencies. The properties are graded in the thickness direction according to the volume fraction power-law distribution. The governing equations are obtained using energy functional with the Rayleigh-Ritz method. The boundary conditions in this cylindrical shell made of two material is clamped-clamped. Results are presented on the frequency characteristics, the influence of the constituent various volume fractions on the frequencies for a Type I, II FGM cylindrical shell
