A structure made of a rigid perfectly plastic material and subjected to more than one independent load is considered. A mode vector is defined for any plastic mechanism and shown to have the same properties relative to the yield-point load interaction surface that the strain-rate vector has to the material yield surface. An application to a circular plate under two independent loads leads to close bounds on the interaction curve.
