Complete-damage evolution based on energies and stresses

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The rate-independent damage model recently developed in [1] allows for complete damage, such that the deformation is no longer well-defined. The evolution can be described in terms of energy densities and stresses. Using concepts of parametrized $\Gamma$-convergence, we generalize the theory to convex, but non-quadratic elastic energies by providing $\Gamma$-convergence of energetic solutions from partial to complete damage under rather general conditions.
