A controlled end-displacement type test rig was developed to study the buckling of electroformed thin circular cylindrical nickel shell specimens; to measure the stress distribution around the shell, a straingage type of load cell was devised. Experimental values of buckling load approximated 65% of the classical values, while the typical load variation around the circumference of the shell was found to be about 15%.
