Scalar Material Damage

Scalar damage model which is computed as a function of multiple scalar damage models

Description

CombinedScalarDamage is a model to define the effect of damage on the stress and stiffness in a continuum damage mechanics setting. It does not directly compute the stress, but must be used in conjunction with ComputeDamageStress.

This model is a scalar damage model in which the stress is computed as a function of the damage , the original stiffness of the material and the elastic strain :

(1)

The damage variable itself is computed as a combination of a series of external scalar damage models defined by the damage_models input parameters. Two combination types are possible: Maximum (default) and Product:

\begin{eqnarray} \mathrm{Maximum:} & d = & \mathrm{max}(d_1 ... d_N) \\ \mathrm{Product:} & d = & 1 - \Prod\limits_{i=1}^{N} (1 - d_i) \end{eqnarray}
