Abstract : Several investigators have presented results which indicate that the disagreement between experimental collapse loads and buckling loads predicted by classical smalldeflection theory for axially compressed thinwalled circular cylinders can be adequately explained with the use of approximate largedeflection energy analyses. The snapthrough manner of collapse is explained by the fact that finitedeflection equilibrium configurations exist for loads or strains considerably lower than those predicted by classical theory. Recently, several investigators have applied similar largedeflection analyses in search of an explanation of the discrepancy between experiment and classical theory for cylinders under external hydrostatic pressure. In the present notes a summary is given of results of largedeflection analyses of homogeneous, isotropic cylinders under axial compression and under hydrostatic pressure, the effect of asymmetric and axially symmetric initial deformations on the loaddeflection characteristics of hydrostatically loaded shells is determined.
