Linear stability of the cylindrical shell with the strong cover filled by the soft core is investigated. Such structures are usually elements of the vehicle bumpers. They are used for dissipating the crash energy. The analysis is focused on finding the most waved buckling form due to the parameters of the structure. An analytical approach is employed in this investigation instead of a numerical one. The standard Lagrangean energy algorithm is expressed in Mathematica formalism
