The critical stresses for a ribbed cylindrical shell are here designated with consideration of discrete arrangement of reinforcing ribs. This offers the possibility of examining also such types of stability losses in which the ribs only bend or are only twisted, or those which cannot be investigated by bringing the problem down to the calculation of a structurally- orthotropic shell. The problem of the critical longitudinal stresses is solved approximately by an energy method. It is considered that for cylindrical shells reinforced by ribs, the critical stresses from total loss in stability can be obtained from the viewpoint of small deformations.
