The energy-momentum tensor for such string as formulated by Letelier (1983) is used to construct massive string cosmological models for which we assume that the expansion (θ) in the model is proportional to the eigenvalue σ^{2}_{ 2}of the shear tensor σ^{j}_{ i}. This condition leads toB=l_{1}(AC)^{m1}, whereA, BandCare the metric coefficients andl_{1},m_{1}are arbitrary constants. Our models are in accelerating phase which is consistent to the recent observations. It has been found that the displacement vector β behaves like cosmological term Λ in the normal gauge treatment and the solutions are consistent with recent observations of SNe Ia supernovae. It is also observed that in early stage of the evolution of the universe string dominates over the particle whereas the universe is dominated by massive string at the late time. Some physical and geometric behaviour of the models have also been discussed in presence and absence of magnetic field.
