## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am new to elastic theory. I have a question about elasticity. We assume we have a body with no internal forces. Surface forces are applied on the border. Can we leave the elastic domain (reach the yield surface) in an interior point without leaving the elastic domain on the boundary?

If no, is there a reference in the literature which shows that from the equations?

Thank you.
