Angular acceleration produces shear stress components in rotating disks. The combined effect of these shear stresses and the centrifugal radial and hoop stresses in producing yield within disks of uniform thickness is investigated using Tresca's yield criterion. The least time in which a given disk can be run up to its maximum speed without producing plastic deformation is calculated. The modes of plastic deformation which can occur when the loading exceeds the yield level are also discussed.
