We illustrate a procedure based on the Magnus expansion for studying mechanical problems which lead to non-autonomous systems of linear ODE's. The effectiveness of the Magnus method is enlighten by the analysis of a bifurcation problem in the framework of three-dimensional non-linear elasticity. In particular, for an isotropic compressible elastic tube subject to an azimuthal shear primary deformation we study the possibility of axially periodic twist-like bifurcations. The approximate matricant of the resulting differential problem and the first singular value of the bifurcating load corresponding to a non-trivial bifurcation are determined by employing a simplified version of the Magnus method, characterized by a truncation of the Magnus series after the second term.
