An analytical solution in the form of a power series is obtained for the three governing equations of free vibrations of axially loaded orthotropic conical shells. Numerical results are presented for the frequency parameters and the associated circumferential wave numbers of the axially loaded shells with different geometric and material parameters and under two types of boundary conditions. It is noted that the axially compressive load decreases the frequency parameters while the axial tension load increases the frequency parameters.
