The anisotropic elasticity damage mechanics is considered within the framework of the classical theory of elasticity. Starting from the principle of strain equivalence and notion of isotropic group, damage tensor components are derived in terms of elastic parameters of undamaged (virgin) material in closed-form solution. The procedure was applied for several symmetries that are important for applications.
