Upon the basic theory of functionally graded material cylindrical shell, the original 3-D foundational equations with variable coefficients are transformed into anisotropic and membrane-bending coupling 2-D equations with constant coefficients. The separation-of-variables mode shape functions in axial and circumferential directions for cylindrical shells with infinite and finite lengths are proposed for analytic solutions, which satisfy the basic differential equations, of natural vibration. The general approach presented in the paper for the solutions of natural frequency and mode shape of functionally graded cylindrical shells can be applied to cylindrical shells with any kind of functionally graded material, different length, and boundary conditions.
