A more convenient way to define these two variables is suggested in the next section. Next, the local-overall relations are discussed. , Cf3 are the appropriate matrix and fiber strain concentration factors. 22). The strain concentration factors can be obtained from the solution of an appropriate inclusion problem. However, in this chapter, a much simpler approach is followed. This approach is based on deriving a relation between the strain and stress concentration factors as follows. 25) to derive suitable expressions for the strain concentration factors, Cf* and CF.

The calculations are not too difficult because of the scalar nature of the damage variable in this case. For anisotropic damage the variable is of tensorial nature [21,22,47] and the work to be done for identification of the models and for applications is much more complicated [12, 21 25]. Nevertheless, according to Lemaitre [12], damage mechanics has been applied since 1975 with success in several fields to evaluate the integrity of structural components and it will become one of the main tools for analyzing the strength of materials as a complement to fracture mechanics.

4a. 4b which contains damage due to voids only. This is termed the undamaged configuration with respect to cracks. The cross-sectional area of the bar in this configuration is clearly A + A v while the uniaxial stress is denoted by a". The total tensile force Tin this configuration is then given by T = ac (A + Av). This expression is equated to the total tensile force T = a A in the damaged configuration from which we obtain: 24 T A +AC JL fSS55< \ . 35) A + A: The damage variable <$" due to cracks is defined by the ratio A 0IA.
