Resumen:
Many different phenomenological failure criteria have been proposed. These type of criteria do not explain the mechanism of failure itself. They merely identify failure (yes or no) and are usually regarded in practice as a simple and reliable tool for design. Most of them were developed for composite materials, but are extensively applied for wood. In this study, existing phenomenological strength criteria for orthotropic materials were applied to clear wood data. Instead of fitting the criteria to available experimental data, the criteria were used to predict failure of biaxial tests based on uniaxial strength. This procedure is closer to practice, and hence an answer to the question ¿is there any reliable failure criterion for wood?¿ Predictability of the criteria was assessed using normalisation procedure, and statistical significance of the difference of the means analysed. Based on the results, it can be concluded that a general criterion cannot be applied to predict failure, but should be chosen according to the biaxial stress state.
