A 3-D micromechanical analysis of damage by mesocracking. (Une analyse micromécanique 3-D de l’endommagement par mésofissuration.) (French. Abridged English version) Zbl 1058.74015
From the summary: We propose a micromechanical analysis of brittle damage. In this approach, the macroscopic free energy for open microcracks and frictionless closed microcracks is built. We also present conditions for unilateral contact (opening/closure criterion, elastic moduli recovery). The proposed construction ensures at the macroscopic level the symmetry of elastic stiffness tensor and the continuity of stress at the damage deactivation.
