In the present work, a continuum damage mechanics model, based on Lemaitre’s concept of equivalent stress hypothesis (1986, “Local Approach to Fracture,” Eng. Fract. Mech., 25, pp. 523–537), has been applied to study the evolution of damage under monotonic loading condition in a near IMI-834 titanium alloy, used for aeroengine components in compressor module. The damage model parameters have been experimentally identified by in situ measurement of damage during monotonic deformation using alternating current potential drop technique. The damage model has been applied to predict damage evolution in an axisymmetrically notched specimen using finite element analysis. A reasonably good agreement has been observed between numerically simulated and experimentally measured damage behaviors. Damage micromechanisms operative in this alloy have also been identified which show multiple damage events.
