The frequency equation for a thin circular cylindrical shell resting on an elastic foundation is developed by using the first order shell theory of Sanders and eigenfrequencies are calculated. These eigenfrequencies are plotted against the axial wave parameter. Effects of the axial wave parameter, circumferential wave number, non-dimensional thickness and foundation parameters on eigenfrequencies are investigated. It is found that the foundation modulus chiefly affects the radial mode eigenfrequency and has no effect on torsional and longitudinal modes. On the otherhand, shear modulus does have influence on radial as well as tangential modes of vibrations. Though the effect on radial mode frequency is more pronounced.
