This paper presents a versatile and efficientmodeling and solution framework for free vibration analysis of composite laminated cylindrical and spherical panels modeled according to two-dimensional equivalent singlelayer and layerwise theories of variable order.Aunified formulation of the equations of motion is adopted which can be used for both thin and thick structures. The discretization procedure is based on the spectral collocation method and is presented in a compact matrix form which can be directly and easily implemented. The convergence and accuracy of the proposed approach is evaluated for panels having different boundary conditions, thickness and shallowness ratios, and lamination layups.
