Equations for strain and stress distribution in hollow rotating cylinders are developed. The deformations are considered to be of such magnitude, that the use of finite-strain theory is necessary. It is assumed that the relationship of true stress to true strain can be represented by a power relation. The three possible modes of plastic failure, namely, instability, cleavage, and shear fracture, are also discussed.
