A strain energy theory is developed for the calculation of the critical load for the inward bulge type of general instability of reinforced monocoque cylinders subjected to pure bending. The deflected shape at buckling is assumed to be represented by an expression containing eight free parameters in addition to the two characterizing the wave lengths in the circumferential and axial directions.
