By directly solving the Navier equations of elasticity, we obtain the discrete Cosserat eigenvalues and eigenvectors for the first boundary value problem of a cylindrical shell. The discrete Cosserat spectrum approaches ω̃n=-2 from both ω̃n<-2 and ω̃n>-2 sides. It also reduces to a condensation point ω̃n=-2 with infinite multiplicity for a cylinder or a cylindrical rigid inclusion in an infinite space.
