Quasi-micromechanical damage model for brittle solids with interacting microcracks
The combination of phenomenological and micromechanical damage mechanics is a promising path to construct an applicable damage model with firm physical foundation. In this paper, a quasi-micromechanical model is presented for microcrack-weakened brittle or quasi-brittle materials. The microcracking damage is characterized in terms of the orientation domain of microcrack growth (DMG) as well as a scalar microcrack density parameter. The DMG describes the complex damage and its evolution...[Show more]
