Most papers dealing with the analysis of the buckling behaviour of orthotropic circular cylindrical shells provide solutions which are complex in nature and difficult to use. In this paper the theory has been developed to the point that relatively simple solutions of a general nature have been formulated. Based on Flugge's linear theory for isotropic cylindrical shells, a general buckling solution under combined axial compression and external pressure was derived. For moderate-length orthotropic cylindrical shells loaded by either external pressure or axial compression, buckling loads are formulated in a simple form. © 1995.
