Materials with more than one constituent phase exhibit behavior which is contingent on the configuration of the microstructure. Additional complexity is encountered when damage effects, such as plastic behavior, are considered. The local configuration of the composite microstructure dictates the location of stress concentrations which develop in the material. These stress concentrations then often determine the location and extent to which the material undergoes damage.This definition can be found in the ABAQUS usera#39;s manual , Section 11.2.6. ... A series of calibration tests is performed, where the results of the GMC-generated stress-strain curve are compared against an ABAQUS model of the sameanbsp;...
