Abstract: In a recent feature article in this journal, co-authored by Gert van der Heijden, I described the static-dynamic analogy and its role in understanding the localized post-buckling of shell-like structures, looking exclusively at integrable systems. We showed the true significance of the Maxwell energy criterion load in predicting the sudden onset of 'shock sensitivity' to lateral disturbances. The present paper extends the survey to cover non-integrable systems, such as thin compressed shells. These exhibit sp…
