Conference paper


The damage development is linear in the monotonic test and the fracture occurs at a given D value much lower than 1. This new concept of the damage development has been extended to fatigue, creep and creep-fatigue experiment. The cumulative damage prediction of this model is very good. The creep-fatigue interaction vary its influence for the damage development according to its stress level.
