This review paper discusses various aspects of buckling of cylindrical shells within the limits of applicability of Hooks linear law. Based on general hypotheses of the theory of thin shells, assuming a normal element, a finding is reached for linear equations for general-type shells, and from these stability equations are derived. Various forms of these equations for cylindrical shells are compared with each other. Stability criteria and methods of solving linear and nonlinear problems are analyzed. Isotropic, orthotropic, and anisotropic shells are examined for a variety of boundary conditions and external force and temperature stresses (longitudinal and transverse pressure, torsion, bending, and their manifold combinations). Results of solving linear and nonlinear problems are analyzed and compared. Experimental data are described. The effect of initial imperfections and the moment status on critical load values is evaluated. Empirical functions are given. The bibliography contains about 1700 references. It covers all studies known to the authors up through 1966. The wealth of material assembled by the authors and also the results of their own research and those of their students make the book a valuable text for persons studying problems of design and calculation, and for specialists and graduate students.
