22.214.171.124 Specific Strain Energy
It may be assumed that damage occurs when the specific strain energy achieves a certain threshold . In that case, the constitutive model for the damage measure is This damage measure is valid for isotropic or anisotropic materials, since the strain energy density must satisfy the frame-invariance of Eq.1↓ by construction. The resulting damage surface normal is where we have used the result of Eq.(126.96.36.199-2).
