Title 
Dynamics of inhomogeneous nonshallow spherical shells

Abstract 
On the basis of a refined theory taking into account shear strains and
rotation inertia of crosssections [1], an axiallysymmetric
initialboundary value problem is formulated for an elastically
fixed inhomogeneous spherical shell. Variation of
physicalmechanical material characteristics with respect to the thickness
of the structure is caused by radiation, thermal, and chemical fields
acting on one of its surfaces and called induced inhomogeneity factors [2].
In the calculation scheme, this variation is taken into account by the
introduction of two arbitrary dimensionless positive function, f_{1}(z)
and f_{2}(z), of the thickness coordinate z.
A new exact (in the framework of the adopted model) solution is obtained
in the form of finite integral transforms [3, 4]
by the method of expansion with respect to vectorvalued eigenfunctions.
An essential point is that
the corresponding spectral problem and inversion formulas take into account
multiple eigenvalues (internal resonances) [57] which affect the
dynamic response of nonshallow shells. While solving the problem,
we also introduce internal friction forces in accordance with the
refined frequencyindependent Voigt model [8, 9].
The problem formulated in such terms has never been studied before.
Fairly complete studies of integrability in inhomogeneous elasticity problems
exist only for problems with a static loading [10]. Much less attention
has been given to dynamical problems for continuously inhomogeneous shells.
In fact, closed form solutions (in the framework of the formulated
mathematical models) of dynamical problems have been constructed only for
shallow spherical shells [11, 12]. These results were obtained without
taking into account viscoelastic resistance and internal resonances
typical of such shells. As shown in [5, 6] by the analysis of the
equations of motion, resonance interaction of flexural and tangential
shapes of vibrations in nonshallow shells is not an exceptional phenomenon
and must be taken into account when finding the frequency spectrum of such
shells. However, this question about the dynamical reaction remains open
even for homogeneous shells.
