A consistent higher-order shear deformation nonlinear theory is developed for shells of generic shape allowing for thickness variation by using six variables; geometric imperfections are also taken into account. The geometrically nonlinear strain-displacement relationships are derived retaining full nonlinear terms in the in-plane displacements. They are presented in curvilinear coordinates in a formulation that can be readily implemented in computer codes. This new theory is applied to laminated circular cylindrical shells complete around the circumference and simply supported at the ends. Linear (natural frequencies) and geometrically nonlinear (large-amplitude forced response) vibrations are studies by using the present theory and results are compared to those obtained by using the refined Amabili-Reddy higher-order shear deformation nonlinear shell theory, which neglects thickness variations.
