A theory is postulated to explain the dynamic plastic buckling of cylindrical shells in sustained axial compressive flow. Tube impact experiments are described in which uniform axisymmetric waves were produced. Predicted and experimental wavelengths are in satisfactory agreement. According to the theory presented, wavelengths do not depend strongly on strain-hardening modulus and, based on results for two aluminum alloys, neither do experimental wavelengths. This result is shown to apply also to slow plastic buckling.
