Nonlinear equations are derived for the axisymmetric deformation of thin, cylindrical shells made of Mooney-Rivlin materials and subject to arbitrarily large strains and rotations. These equations are then implemented numerically using an energy minimization technique. Finally, an extensive parametric analysis is done of cylindrical shells which are clamped at one end and loaded with either a radial force or an edge moment uniformly distributed along the circumference of the other end.
