Quasistatic damage evolution with spatial $\mathrm{BV}$-regularization

  • An existence result for energetic solutions of rate-independent damage processes is established. We consider a body consisting of a physically linearly elastic material undergoing infinitesimally small deformations and partial damage. In [23] an existence result in the small strain setting was obtained under the assumption that the damage variable $z$ satisfies $z\in W^{1,r}(\Omega)$ with $r\in(1,\infty)$ for $\Omega⊂ \mathbb{R}^d.$ We now cover the case $r=1$. The lack of compactness in $W^{1,1}(\Omega)$ requires to do the analysis in $\mathrm{BV}(\Omega)$. This setting allows it to consider damage variables with values in {0,1}. We show that such a brittle damage model is obtained as the $\Gamma$-limit of functionals of Modica-Mortola type.
