The collapse of a cylindrical shell due to tight fiber windings is investigated theoretically and experimentally. Buckling in the infinitesimal sense of Euler appears to be possible, if the fibers are not bonded well to the shell. Perhaps more significant than the Euler critical load is a dangerous snap-through condition that may develop.
