Abstract : The present work is part of ongoing analytical research dealing with: Nonlinear response (Pre- and Post-Limit Point Behavior); Of geometrically imperfect, circular, cylindrical, thin shells of various constructions (Metallic, With or Without Stiffeners, Laminated, etc.); Supported in various ways at the boundaries (Clamped, Pinned, etc.), and Subjected to static and sudden (Static as well as Dynamic) loads (Pressure, Axial Compression, Torsion) applied individually or in combination.
