Using the strain-mapping method for the Tresca yield condition, the yield surface is derived for a cylindrical shell with a wall reinforced by longitudinal ribs on one side. Results are given for the case where the axial load is zero. As a sample problem utilizing this surface and as an appropriate method for solving nonlinear equations, the solution of a cantilever shell under constant pressure is obtained.
