Buckling and post buckling behavior of axially loaded cylindrical shells is studied. Linear and nonlinear equations are solved by finite difference techniques. Eight boundary conditions that differ from those assumed in the classical solution are considered. It is shown that changes in the boundary conditions have a significant effect on both the linear buckling load and on the shape of the post buckling curve. Critical loads and buckling mode shapes are obtained for a wide range of shell curvature.
