Sidoroff [16] proposed the hypothesis of elastic energy equivalence. 10) represents the transformation law for the modulus of elasticity. It is clear now that Young's modulus for the damaged material depends on the value of the damage variable (j). Further remarks on this relation and its experimental investigation are discussed in detail later in Chapter 12. 11) to obtain values of the damage variable (J). It should be noted that the value of E is constant for the effective (undamaged) material.

3 Constitutive Relations The elastic constitutive relations are now developed in both the damaged and the effective undamaged configurations. In addition, the local-overall constitutive relations are also discussed. In the fictitious undamaged lamina, the overall strain increments are given by: rfe. 35c) where the material constants E, v21, and v31 are the effective overall Young's modulus of elasticity, 43 and effective overall Poisson's ratios, respectively. 35), we can write a similar set of overall constitutive relations in the damaged lamina as follows: J do der = — , , ~£ .

Kaehanov in 1958 [1] was the first to introduce a continuous variable related to the density of such defects. This variable has constitutive equations for evolution, written in terms of stress or strain, which may be used in structural calculations in order to predict the initiation of macro-cracks. These constitutive equations have been formulated in the framework of thermodynamics and identified for 14 many phenomena: dissipation and low-cycle fatigue in metals [93], coupling between damage and creep [7,8], high-cycle fatigue [6], creep-fatigue interaction [9], and ductile plastic damage [10].
