The article analyzes advantages of cellular constructions compared with constructions from monolithic materials. Strength and stability analysis of cellular cylinder is being carried out by using numerical method. Cellular cylinders in various sizes are being analyzed. Research showed that V-shaped cylinders have the greatest sustainable capability. The strength and stability analysis was carried out, results of geometrical dimensions of cellular cylinders were obtained, which are important in the production of construction elements of high technologies. In the application of cellular contsructions, it is possible to produce lightweight, multifunctional constructions and to select suitable materials to ensure the sustainable capacity and economy
