Damage evolution for ductile materials in low-cycle fatigue

 The damage evolution capability for ductile materials based on inelastic hysteresis energy: assumes that damage is characterized by the progressive degradation of the material stiffness, leading to material failure; must be used in combination with a damage initiation criterion for ductile materials in low-cycle fatigue analysis (Damage initiation for ductile materials in low-cycle fatigue); uses the inelastic hysteresis energy per stabilized cycle to drive the evolution of damage after damage initiation; and must be used in conjunction with the linear elastic material model (Linear elastic behavior), the porous elastic material model (Elastic behavior of porous materials), or the hypoelastic material model (Hypoelastic behavior). The following topics are discussed:
