The 3D nonaxisymmetric local stability loss problem is studied for a hollow cylinder, made of a viscoelastic composite material, under the axial compression. The criterion of an infinitesimal initial imperfection is employed, and the evolution of this imperfection is investigated by 3D geometrically nonlinear exact equations of viscoelasticity theory. The corresponding nonlinear problem is solved by the boundary perturbation method. The material of the cylinder is modeled as a viscoelastic transversely isotropic medium. Numerical results for the critical time and critical compressive forces are presented, discussed, and compared with those obtained by approximate shell theories.
