The fundamental frequencies of fiber-reinforced laminated cylindrical shells with a given material system are maximized with respect to fiber orientations by using the golden section method. The significant effects of shell thickness, shell length, cutout and end condition on the maximum fundamental frequencies and the associated optimal fiber orientations are demonstrated.
