The theory of a previous paper [1], which was designed for plane strain of a compound cylinder, is extended to generalized plane strain, where the axial strain is a constant nonzero value for every radius and depends only on the external and internal pressures and any extraneous axial load. The method is limited to incompressible elastic material and is found to be completely solvable only if an elastic zone exists in each component. The assumed Tresca yield condition is verified in the process of obtaining the complete solution.
