The discontinuity in the sensitivity of laminated cylindrical shells is investigated via the initial post-buckling analysis. A general procedure for sensitivity, based on Koiter’s parameters and using the Donnell and Sanders shell theories, is developed and used for parametric study of the discontinuity phenomenon. It was found that the discontinuity occurs at points of change of the circumferential wave number.
