By using the theorie of finite deformation it is shown that a circular plate of radius d can be bent into a spherical shell by forces and couples applied to the edges only, the inner surface a and the outer surface b of the shell being free from tractions. The radius of the plate is assumed to be small compared with a and b so that (d/a2) can be neglected. The particular case in which the Possion's ratio σ is equal to ⅓ has been discussed in detail. The percentage of decrease in thickness and the change in the edge-radii have been obtained.
