An investigation is undertaken to reevaluate the elastic theory results obtained by previous investigators for both perfect and initially imperfect, axially compressed circular cylindrical shells, develop new elastic stability results describing the postbuckling behavior of curved plates, and present criteria based, in part, upon the curved plate results which can be used to size and locate stringers and rings such that the initial buckling load will occur in the neighborhood of the classical buckling load for a cylinder representing a minimized-weight design.
