  1. The object of this paper is to study the torsional vibration of an in-homogeneous elastic cone. For in-homogeneous of the material considered it is assumed that the elastic constants and the density of the material very exponentially as the radial distance. Two broad cases of end condition have been taken into account. Displacements and stresses for a particular case have been obtained and are shown in tabular from and graphically for different values of radial distance.
