The elastic stability of a thin-walled circular cylindrical shell is investigated by means of the small-deflection theory when the shell is subjected to such nonuniform heating as causes a uniform axial compressive stress to arise in a band of width 2b while the rest of the shell is free of stress. The critical value of the compressive axial stress is found to be equal to the critical stress of the same circular cylindrical shell when subjected to uniform axial compression provided the band is not extremely narrow. In the latter case the critical stress of the band is higher than that of the uniformly compressed shell.
