An elastic-plastic analysis of a spherical shell loaded radially through a rigid inclusion is performed. The sphere is modeled as a shallow shell of infinite extent. The Tresca yield condition is used to derive the elastic-plastic moment-curvature relationship in a simple form. This is used to develop a computationally efficient solution method.
