Buckling Analysis of a Cylinder With End Caps - Fixtures Help Required

Hello all,

 

I'm aiming to complete a buckling analysis of a cylinder with ends caps subjected to external pressure.

 

My question comes as to which fixture to use?

 

Should I prevent all translation of the faces of the end caps? and then apply the external pressure to cylindrical surface?

 

All help and theory on the matter is greatly appreciated,

 

Thanks!
