Abstract: Of most importance in continuum damage mechanics is how to properly define a damage variable that is available for describing damage degree and its evolution. It plays a key role in correlating macro mechanical responses to their internal micro/meso damage effects in materials. As one of widely accepted effective approaches to define a damage variable, macro phenomenological definition performs a great advantage of being easily utilized in analyzing macro damage mechanical responses of materials and struct...
