A theory for the bending of cord composite laminate cylindrical shells is developed. The extension-twist coupling of the cords is taken into account. The general case of a circular cylindrical shell with cord plies at various angles to the shell axis is considered. The differential equations for the displacements are derived. These equations are solved analytically in closed form for a shell subjected to axisymmetric loading and no in-plane tractions. The results of the current study are compared with the commonly used Gough-Tangorra and Akasaka-Hirano solutions.
