A procedure for the analysis of dynamic buckling of axisymmetric shells subjected to axisymmetric, periodic loads of long duration is proposed that is based on the calculation of the nonsymmetric modes of free vibration and associated mode integrals over the reference surface of the shell. Numerical results are presented for the evaluation of dynamic stability of an actual shell that is designed for the cooling system of a nuclear power plant.
