The paper presents study of the dynamic aspects of the multiply bellows with elastically restrained ends and under rotatory inertia. The influence of rotational restraint and internal pressure loading on dynamic response of such bellows configuration has been attempted here. An attempt has been made here to establish relations that are simple and compatible in computing the frequency of bellows. The “Rayleigh Quotient”, method is used for this purpose. The coupled responses obtained are compared with exact analysis for multiply configuration. Two cases are considered — bellows having same material and different materials for plies.
