This paper develops a theory for the determination of the plastic pressure-deformation relation in a thick-walled cylindrical pressure vessel subjected to internal pressure and made of an anisotropic material. In this theory, large or finite strains are considered and a closed solution is found for the pressure-strain relation based on a modified log-log tensile stress-strain relation. Theory is also developed for predicting the maximum pressure which the vessel can withstand.
