Abstract : A set of integral equations is obtained for the stress-rates that correspond to a given rate of loading from a given elasto-plastic state in an elastic-plastic, workhardening sandwich arch. Methods of solving these integral equations are considered. It is found that the integral-equation approach permits solutions which are as accurate as desired even when the loading program involves extensive partial unloadings. (Author)
