Abstract : The buckling strengths of eleven axially compressed filament-wound cylinders with diameter to thickness ratios ranging from 167 to 643 are determined experimentally and analytically. The analytical predictions of buckling loads are made by using linear anisotropic shell theory. The results of the compression tests generally indicate that the cylinders buckled at 65 to 85% of the loads predicted by linear analysis. The composite moduli for each of the cylinders are determined experimentally and are in reasonable agreement with the theory of S. Tsai.
