In this paper an analysis based on incremental theory of plasticity is formulated to predict the thermoelastoplastic stresses in a hollow sphere. The properties of the material are assumed to be temperature dependent, and the material was characterized by linear strain hardening. Mendeson’s method of successive elastic solution is presented for the analysis. The analysis shows that the stresses are not monotonic function of radius or temperature, they strongly depend on history of temperature distribution. In this analysis the problem is treated in a uncoupled, and quasi-static sense. The plastic stress and strain distribution on loading and the residual stress distribution on unloading is presented. The results are compared with the results of other investigators who used a different theory and a reasonable agreement is observed.
