It is widely accepted that the flow theory of plasticity significantly overestimates buckling stresses and strains and, in some cases, fails to predict buckling at all, while the deformation theory, which lacks physical rigor compared to the flow theory, predicts results that are in better agreement with experimental ones. The deformation theory is therefore recommended for use in practical applications of the buckling of shells. This paper aims to review in detail the causes behind the seeming
