Abstract Shells buckle under compression load levels below the thresholds predicted by linear stability analysis. The reduction of the load-carrying capacity has been linked to extreme sensitivity to geometric imperfections. Historically, spatially extended periodic imperfections have been analyzed to mimic this behavior. Recent fully nonlinear analysis of the shell equations suggests however the importance of ...
