In particular, we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition in order that the plastic region exists and we characterize the free boundary. Moreover, we find the explicit radial solution $u \in W^{2,p}(\Omega)$ and the Lagrange multiplier $\overline \mu \in L^p(\Omega)$. [ Fulltext-pdf  (242  KB)] for subscribers only.
