Properties of ideal rigig plastic solids are used to define bounding yield conditions that remain valid when test results are available for only one stress state, such as simple tension or simple shear; use of maximum shear stress criterion of Tresca and new criterion designated as maximum reduced stress criterion enables best possible bounds to be obtained for carrying capacity of structure in absence of further information.
