In 2004, the paper of Stefan Medwadowski on “Buckling of Concrete Shells: An Overview” [16] presented an excellent overlook over the state-of-the-art of classical stability methods and its application to concrete shells. The respective algorithms in finite-element-method have only been touched, but not discussed in detail. The present paper will give a review of former and new developments in the numerical simulation procedures of buckling phenomena. On one hand, the progress in the development of numerical tools to simulate nonlinearity in concrete structures is significant. On the other hand, there is still a vital need for engineering experience and imagination in order to interpret and value the results correctly. Thus the present paper will consecutively fit to the Medwadowski paper [16]. Besides a more realistic consideration of material nonlinearity in reinforced concrete composite as well a more practical numerical approach will be given.
