A micromechanical model of distributed damage due to void growth in general materials and under general deformation histories

We develop a multiscale model of ductile damage by void growth in general materials undergoing arbitrary deformations. The model is formulated in the spirit of multiscale finite element methods (FE), that is, the macroscopic behavior of the material is obtained by a simultaneous numerical evaluation of the response of a representative volume element.
