Shell structures have various applications in Civil and Mechanical engineering. Shells, like other types of structure, are subject to damage and deterioration, such as development and propagation of cracks. In this research, the effect of a full penetration non - propagating macro crack, with various parameters, on natural vibration frequencies and mode shapes, is investigated. For this purpose, 400 cracked shell models have been created. These shells are grouped into cylindrical panels and full cylindrical shells and the effect of various parameters, such as crack length, crack orientation, thickness, poisson ratio, shell height and panel's central angle, on the vibration frequencies and mode shapes of the shells, has been investigated.
