The use of finite components of strain and a linear stress-strain relation shows that a plate can be bent into a cylindrical shell whose section is given by rn cos nθ=an, where n=(3−2σ)−1, σ being the Poisson’s ratio. The case (σ=1/2) and the one given by r2/5 cos2/5 θ=a2/5, (σ=1/4) are discussed in detail.
