Abstract: Upper and lower bounds for the maximum shear stress in a configuration corresponding to a purely distortional deformation originating from a given undistorted (ground) state are obtained in the framework of plane, isotropic, nonlinear elasticity. The bounds are shown to be expressible in terms of the deformation and the boundary traction that is required for maintaining the purely dilatational deformation in the ground state.
