This paper continues the investigation of the shakedown behavior of tubes subjected to cyclic centrifugal force and temperature, and sustained internal and external pressures. It is found that when ratchetting occurs, the plastic strain builds up with each cycle, but finally reaches a steady state after a large number of cycles for kinematic hardening materials. The steady solutions for three kinds of ratchetting behavior are found and given in this paper.
