Conditions leading to the growth of initial imperfections for rings or long cylindrical shells subjected to initial uniform inward impulsive velocity loading are investigated. The work is motivated by a need to prevent buckling of rings during the contracting ring test, which is used to determine intermediate strain rate compressive stress-strain data. A previous analysis by Abrahamson is extended to include deceleration of the ring during inward motion; and the results of this deceleration are found to greatly influence the growth of imperfections (buckling). Qualitative comparisons with experimental data are presented.
