Reliable and robust fracture prediction tools are necessary for designing and analyzing critical engineering structures. This paper uses a phenomenological damage model to study the fracture response of a pressure vessel steel under complex loading conditions. Details of the experiments and numerical procedures are provided for calibrating and validating the proposed framework for predicting ductile fracture.
