Different Theories of Failure : These are five different theories of failures which are generally used.

(a) Maximum Principal stress theory (due to Rankine).

(b) Maximum shear stress theory (Guest - Tresca).

(c) Maximum Principal strain (Saint - Venant) Theory.

(d) Total strain energy per unit volume (Haigh) Theory.

(e) Shear strain energy per unit volume Theory (Von Mises & Hencky).
