This paper suggests a simple numerical approach to the limit analysis of cantilever cylindrical shells. The loads considered are external pressure and external pressure combined with a moment at the free shell end. It is shown that the collapse loads are within 4.5 percent on the safe side of the exact von Mises limit loads. The extension of the method of analysis to more complex problems is suggested.
