The stability of cylindrical shells of arbitrary wall thickness subjected to uniform radial tensile or compressive dead-load traction is investigated. The material of the shell is assumed to be a polynomial compressible material which is homogeneous, isotropic, and hyperelastic. The governing equations are solved numerically using the multiple shooting method. The loss of stability occurs when the motions cease to be periodic. The effects of several geometric and material properties on the stress and the deformation fields are investigated.
