Based on the generalized differential quadrature (GDQ) method, this paper presents, for the first instance, the free-vibration behavior of a rotating thin truncated open conical shell panel. The present governing equations of free vibration include the effects of initial hoop tension and the centrifugal and Coriolis accelerations due to rotation. Frequency characteristics are obtained to study in detail the influence of panel parameters and boundary conditions on the frequency characteristics. Further, qualitative differences between the vibration characteristics of rotating conical panels and that of rotating full conical shells are investigated. To ensure the accuracy of the present results using the GDQ method, comparisons and verifications are made for the special case of a stationary panel.
