Experiments are described in which various phenomena associated with the large deformation compression of metal tubes between rigid plates are examined. The observations from these tests led to the formulation of an alternative theory  for tube compression. The relevance of these observations and the resulting theory to other plasticity problems involving bending as the primary mode of deformation is discussed.
