The yield condition for a rotationally symmetric shell may be represented as a surface in a four-dimensional stress space. The exact yield surface according to the Tresca yield condition is compared with various approximations. A new approximation is suggested which combines the advantages of mathematical simplicity and reasonable accuracy. The theory is illustrated with reference to a spherical cap under uniform pressure.
