This paper presents an analysis of the post-buckling behaviour of isotropic cylindrical and conical shells under axial compression. The starting point of the paper is Lagrange's variational principle, the application of which consists in assuming a kinematically admissible strain and displacement field. The field is determined considering the geometry of quasi-isometric deformations of the shell after buckling. That permits solving the problem with no limitation on the magnitude of the displacements. © 1979.
