Basic mathematical elements of a higher order failure theory for anisotropic material are outlined. Surface closure is ensured by requiring a tensor polynomial to satisfy constraint conditions. Results from one of the laboratory experiments used for determination of failure coefficients for cross-rolled beryllium sheets is presented as an example. A three-dimensional surface for beryllium sheet material illustrates a subset of the six-dimensional stress space.
