Abstract : This paper investigates magneto-elastic torsional waves in a composite non homogeneous cylindrical shell under initial stress. The non homogeneous character of the shell is due to the variable elastic constants C/sub ij/ and the variable density rho. The composite form of the shell is due to the combination of orthotropic elastic material and visco-elastic material of general linear type. Frequency equation for the said wave has been derived.
