Reliable and accurate method of the experimental buckling prediction of thin-walled cylindrical shell under an eccentric load is presented. The experimental arrangement and specimens are discussed in detail, including the measurement of the geometric imperfections of the specimen's surface using a coordinate measuring machine. Different FE models, in terms of complexity, are used to simulate the experiment arrangement in an attempt to get a good agreement with the experimental buckling loads and study the effect of measured initial geometric imperfections, load eccentricity, load eccentricity position along the shell's circumferential direction and different experimental arrangement that influence the boundary conditions. It has been demonstrated that FE models with simplified rigid support conditions overestimate the prediction of the experimental buckling load even though these models included the effects of the measured initial geometric imperfections and load eccentricity. By contrast, FE models with realistically modeled support conditions achieved the best result. The average deviation -1.59% from the experimental buckling loads was achieved using the FE model simulating the mounting devices as elastic bodies and with surface-to-surface contact interaction behavior on the support. The presented work also demonstrated the strong influence of the eccentric load position along the imperfect shell's circumferential direction on the buckling of the thin-walled shell.
