A new method for obtaining statically admissible states of stress in plane strain in the mathematical theory of plasticity is presented. After deriving a general solution, the proposed procedure is exemplified by a known solution of a thick circular cylinder subjected to internal pressure. The method is applied to a thick circular cylinder subjected to internal pressure and shear, and a lower-bound solution is given.
