Neither the yield criterion nor the associated flow rule is assumed here. The results obtained here are applicable to compressible materials. If the additional condition of incompressibility is imposed, then the expression for stresses corresponds to those arising from Tresca yield condition. It has observed that for rotating disc made of compressible material required higher angular speed to yield at the internal surface as compare to disc made of incompressible material and a much higher angular speed is required to yield with the increase in radii ratio. With the introduction of thermal effects, lesser angular speed is required to yield at the internal surface. Thermal effect in the disc increase the value of circumferential stress at the internal surface and radial stresses at the external surface for compressible as compare to incompressible material.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_520701_5622819ff9faf68953f9a0c8aa27abe1.pdf
