Two mathematically consistent solutions to the strains and displacement in a partly plastic, annular plate stressed by internal pressure are obtained according to the deformation theory of Hencky and to the flow theory of Prandtl-Reuss. In both cases, the material is assumed to be elastic, perfectly plastic and obeying the Mises yield condition. It is shown that one solution is expressed in closed form and the other, in terms of simple integrals. A quantitative comparison of two theories is given and the effect of compressibility is discussed.
