Anisotropic viscoplasticity coupled with anisotropic damage has been modeled in previous works by using the energy equivalence principle appropriately adjusted. Isotropic and kinematic hardenings are present in the viscoplastic part of the model and the evolution equations for the hardening variables incorporate both static and dynamic recovery terms. The main difference to other approaches consists in the formulation of the energy equivalence principle for the plastic stress power and the rate of hardening energy stored in the material. As a practical consequence, a yield function has been established, which depends, besides effective stress variables, on specific functions of damage. The present paper addresses the capabilities of the model in predicting responses of deformation processes with complex specimen geometry. In particular, multiple notched circular specimens and plates with multiple holes under cyclic loading conditions are considered. Comparison of predicted responses with experimental results confirms the convenience of the proposed theory for describing anisotropic damage effects.
