Elastic-Plastic Damage

  • Sumio MurakamiEmail author
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 185)


The preceding chapters were concerned with the notion and the fundamental theories of continuum damage mechanics (CDM). Hereafter we will discuss the application of CDM to damage and fracture phenomena encountered in wide range of engineering problems. The present chapter starts with the modeling of elastic-plastic damage and its application. In Section 6.1, we summarized the constitutive and the evolution equations of elastic-plastic isotropic damage of materials developed in Chapter 4, and discuss their application to the problems of ductile damage, brittle damage and quasi-brittle damage. Section 6.2, on the other hand, is concerned with the detailed discussion of ductile damage process, i.e., the discussion of physical and mechanical aspects of ductile damage, their mechanical modeling and its analysis.
