An elastoplastic analysis of an axisymmetric cylinder subjected to linear body forces is presented. The effect of reinforcement and anisotropy are also included. Classical plasticity and familiar assumptions of plane stress and strain are used to arrive at closed-form solutions for the case of linear body forces. The problem is solved for the general case in which orthotropy is considered in the elastic range. For the case of plasticity, first the isotropic yield functions (von Mises and Tresca) are used and then the problem is extended to the case of Hill’s yield criterion. Closed-form solutions are found for both the von Mises (plane strain) and Tresca (plane stress and strain) cases.
