Some misstatements appearing in the final form of the failure criterion formulation, de-
rived from Burzyński’s hypothesis of material effort for anisotropic bodies, which haven’t been
noticed in the literature as yet, are pointed out and discussed. Alternative interpretations of
the results obtained by Burzyński are presented. Propositions of different formulation of the
failure criterion, basing on original ideas of Burzyński, are given.
Keywords: Burzyński’s hypothesis, limit condition, material effort, anisotropy
