Elastic shallow generalized cylindrical shells of an open cross-section subjected to the various forms of external pressure are analysed in the paper numerically using the finite element method. Load - displacement paths are calculated for the perfect and imperfect geometry, respectively. Special attention is paid to the influence of initial geometric imperfection on the limit load level of fundamental equilibrium path of nonlinear analysis. ANSYS system was used for analysis, arc-length method was chosen for obtaining fundamental load - displacement path of solution.
