Continuum damage mechanics (CDM) model is commonly used for the prediction of ductile fracture. For numerical simulation of ductile fracture in impact or high-temperature problems, the damage growth law that incorporates the effect of high temperature is needed. Experimentally, it has been observed that damage growth decreases with temperature. However, the damage growth law at high temperature is not easily available in the literature. In the present work, a damage growth law at high temperature is proposed for steel, based on the experimental measurement of damage carried out at IIT Kanpur.
