Abstract:

A flat plate experiences a transverse acceleration under the action of a pressure that also produces plastic yielding throughout the plate. Taylor instability is considered on the assumptions of a single degree of freedom, incompressible flow, and the Prandtl-Reuss constitutive equations in the limiting cases of A infinitesimal perturbations and B rigid-plastic flow yield stressshear modulus approaches O.
