By considering the Yoshimura pattern obtained in buckling thin-walled cylinders as a space frame and calculating the collapse loads of the compression members the critical loads of a buckling cylinder can be estimated. Excellent agreement has been obtained with one set of published experimental data in establishing both the postbuckling critical loads and the initial buckling load.
