The displacement field belonging to the elastic-plastic stress field in a rotating solid disk that can be found with the help of Tresca’s yield condition, in textbooks on plasticity, is discontinuous at the elastic-plastic interface. Tresca’s yield condition cannot be applied to this problem since its associated flow rule predicts a negative plastic strain caused by a tensile stress.
