An approximate solution is derived for the stresses in a circular, closed-end, unrestrained tube subjected to an internal pressure of sufficient magnitude to induce plastic flow. The Mises yield criterion is assumed in the plastic region of the tube. The radial and circumferential stresses are found to be in good agreement with those for the plane stress case. Results are shown graphically.
