This paper presents an experimental and numerical analysis of damage evolution in AA2011 aluminum alloy wires drawn under different scenarios. To this end, load-unload tensile tests were firstly carried out in order to characterize the degradation of the mechanical response in every cycle where the experimental results show a bilinear damage relationship in terms of the effective plastic strain. Therefore, a modification of the classical Lemaitre model is proposed in this work in order to reproduce bilinear paths of damage with the addition of only two parameters that can be directly obtained from the material characterization. Then, the damage predictive capability of this new experimental-based model is assessed in numerical simulations of the drawing process in one and two passes (considering for this last case the sequential and tandem configurations) where the computed predictions are compared with the corresponding experimental data showing a good agreement between them.

A new connection measure between the precast concrete (PC) cladding panel and PC frame structure is proposed to realize a new kind of isostatic frame-cladding system. Three full-scale PC wall-frame substructures were tested under the quasi-static load. These substructures included a bare wall-frame specimen, a specimen with a cladding panel that has no opening, and a specimen with a cladding panel that has an opening in it. The damage evolution, failure mode, load-bearing capacity, deformation capacity, and energy dissipation capacity of three specimens were compared. The results indicated that the motions of the cladding panels and the main structures were uncoupled through the relative clearance of the bottom connections, and three specimens exhibited approximately identical failure modes and seismic performance. Thus, the reliability of this new isostatic system was validated.

AbstractWe propose and assess a procedure to measure the damage evolution in solids as a function of the applied strain, by conducting stiffness-sensing mechanical tests. These tests consist in superimposing to a monotonically increasing applied strain numerous, low-amplitude unloading/reloading cycles, and extracting the current stiffness of the specimens from the slope of the stress–strain curve in each of the unloading/reloading cycles. The technique is applied to a set of polymeric and metallic solids with a wide range of stiffness, including CFRP laminates loaded through the thickness, epoxy resins, injection-moulded and 3D printed PLA and sintered Ti powders. The tests reveal that, for all the materials tested, damage starts developing at the very early stages of deformation, during what is commonly considered an elastic response. We show that the test method is effective and allows enriching the data extracted from conventional mechanical tests, for potential use in data-driven constitutive models. We also show that the measurements are consistent with the results of acoustic and resistive measurements, and that the method can be used to quantify the viscous response of the materials tested.

Computational modelling of damage and rupture of non-connective and connective soft tissues due to pathological and supra-physiological mechanisms is vital in the fundamental understanding of failures. Recent advancements in soft tissue damage models play an essential role in developing artificial tissues, medical devices/implants, and surgical intervention practices. The current article reviews the recently developed damage models and rupture models that considered the microstructure of the tissues. Earlier review works presented damage and rupture separately, wherein this work reviews both damage and rupture in soft tissues. Wherein the present article provides a detailed review of various models on the damage evolution and tear in soft tissues focusing on key conceptual ideas, advantages, limitations, and challenges. Some key challenges of damage and rupture models are outlined in the article, which helps extend the present damage and rupture models to various soft tissues.
