Linear stability of eccentrically stiffened cylindrical shells under axial compression has been investigated in the paper with an aim to establish the parameter ranges for the prevailing buckling modes. Charts delineating the zones of prevailing modes are presented in a parameter plane. Useful approximate relations are given for the bounds on parameters to predict a buckling mode for a shell in the moderate length range.
