Subject of this analytical investigation is a rotating two-layered hollow cylinder under generalized plane strain subject to an elevated temperature at the inner surface or to internal pressure. It is presupposed that the inner cylindrical layer consists of the heavier material, whereas the outer layer is made of a material with lower density, like for example in a steel/aluminum tube. Criterion for the maximum permissible stress is the yield criterion by von Mises, and the device is optimized with respect to its weight. It is found that plasticization may start at different radii, and the study provides not only a comprehensive overview of the elastic limits of composite tubes of the above type but also a straightforward procedure for determining the optimum composition.
