Abstract : Transition theory of elastic-plastic deformation, developed in recent papers, is applied to the plastic bending of a rectangular sheet. No semi-empirical yield condition is assumed. It comes out of the equations. Further, the orthogonality assumption shows that the only possible form when it becomes plastic is circular. The analysis also separates the two regions of yielding under extension and compression, which correspond to the turning points of the non-linear differential equations arising out of the equations of equilibrium.
