Thin Walled Cylinder Buckling

A cylinder is loaded with a uniformly distributed line load along the top edge. Critical buckling load is determined. Different meshes and differences between Belytschko-Tsay shell (elform 2), S/R Hughes-Liu shell (elform 6), Belytschko-Wong-Chiang shell (elform 10) and fully integrated shell (elform 16) can be studied.
