A numerical method for investigating stability of the supported cylindrical shell with account for geometric imperfection in the form of its deformation during in-service loading has been developed. The problem of nonlinear stability of the imperfect supported cylindrical shell under combined loading has been solved. The influence of the imperfection amplitude on the critical combination of loads and stability region of the supported shell has been evaluated.
