The  nonlinear  dynamics  of  circular  cylindrical  shells  under  combined  axial  static  and  periodic  forces  are experimentally investigated. The goal is to study the dynamic scenario and to analyze non- linear regimes. The linear behavior under static preload is analyzed by means of the usual modal testing techniques. The complex dynamics  arising  when  a  periodic  axial  load  excites  the  first  axisymmetric  mode  are  analyzed  by  means  of amplitude  frequency  diagrams,  waterfall  spectrum  diagrams,  bifurcation  diagrams  of  Poincaré  maps,  time histories, spectra, phase portraits.
