A simplified partial wrinkling scenario for in-plane bending of thin cylindrical shells is explored by using several asymptotic strategies. The eighth-order boundary eigenvalue problem investigated here originates in the Donnel–Mushtari–Vlasov shallow shell theory coupled with a linear membrane pre-bifurcation state. It is shown that the corresponding neutral stability curve is amenable to a detailed asymptotic analysis based on the method of multiple scales. This is further complemented by an alternative WKB approximation that provides comparable information with significantly less effort.
