This work considers an effective analytical method based on Displacement Potential Function (DPF) for solving 3-D thick and multi-layered transversely isotropic linearly elastic cylindrical shells (non-homogeneous in radial direction) with simply-supported end boundary conditions. Axisymmetric radial loads are applied on the inner and outer faces of the cylindrical shell. Three-dimensional elasticity equations are simplified using displacement potential function result in one single linear partial differential equation of fourth order as governing differential equation in term of displacement potential function. The governing equation is solved via the separation of variable method with exact satisfaction of two end boundary conditions including stress and displacement boundary conditions, stresses on the inner and outer surfaces of the shell, and the continuity conditions of the displacement and tractions on the interfacial surfaces of the multi-layered cylindrical shell. After determining displacement potential function, all other functions such as stresses and displacements can be obtained at each point of the examined shell. Comparison of the results with existing analytical results show excellent agreement at different thickness ratios and aspect ratios of the shells. Some practical problems are solved for one-layered and three-layered cylindrical shells. For this purpose, three types of materials are defined for a one-layered cylindrical shell such as composite material (Graphite epoxy), metallic substance (e.g. Zinc), and isotropic material (Aluminum). Also two combinations of materials are considered for three-layered cylindrical shell so that the inner and outer layers of the shell are made of transversely isotropic material (Graphite epoxy), while the middle layer of the isotropic material is made of aluminum and foam. The values of the non-dimensional functions containing stress and displacement components are calculated for these problems to demonstrate the effect of thickness ratio and anisotropy of the shell on the distribution of the stresses and displacements.
