This paper is a contribution to the prediction of edge fracture behavior using uncoupled ductile fracture models. A fully integrated simulation framework for the edge fracture prediction is proposed with the shear-induced pre-damage considered. User-defined material subroutines are coded with uncoupled ductile fracture models (Lou-Huh, Oh, Brozzo) incorporated, which are calibrated using the fracture strains of various loading paths. A series of 3D numerical simulations are performed and compared with the results of hole-expansion tests. The effects of pre-damage field and fracture models are analyzed and discussed.
