For a rigid/plastic, hardening material model, it is shown that the velocity fields adjacent to surfaces of maximum friction must satisfy the sticking condition. This means that the stress boundary condition, the maximum friction law, may be replaced by the velocity boundary condition. Axisymmetric flows without rotation and planar flows are considered.
