Development of continuum damage mechanics
for elastic solids sustaining anisotropic and unilateral damage.
To incorporate damage on the constitutive equations, the so-called effective stress from continuum damage mechanics
In this paper, according to the varying characteristic of fatigue ductility, a modified non-linear uniaxial fatigue damage accumulation model is proposed on the basis of the continuum damage mechanics
Concerning the strain equivalent principle in damage mechanics
, the stress in craze zone with damage is defined as
