The paper deals with the criteria for stable response paths of irreversible structural systems and illustrate their application in some typical problems of plastic buckling, strain-softening failure, spreading of zones of strain-softening fracture and propagation of interacting cracks. Problems of this type are particularly important for failure analysis of composite materials.
