Abstract : The paper presents experimentally determined contours at initial buckling for an aluminum right circular cylindrical shell of 3.35 inches of diameter and 0.0025 inches wall thickness loaded in axial compression. It shows that when the buckle amplitude is only 2.8 times the wall thickness there is strong evidence of plastic deformations. (Author)
