Damage model for brittle Epoxy in Abaqus


   I am working on Epoxy material damage for a research project. We observed from the experiments that the Epoxy material just fails without any plastic deformation and tensile yield strength is lower than compression (2-3 times). So, inorder to simulate the material damage model in Abaqus, could anyone advise me that which damage model I should consider for my analysis?. Most of the material-damage models available for ductile materials, for example, General Ductile, Jhonson-Crook, Druckker Prager model, atc..Although I could see brittle cracking mode, its only availble in Abaqus/Explicit if am not wrong..

 Thanks in advance,,



you should have a look at abaqus Czone plugin
