The load carrying capacity of ductile materials degrades as a function of porosity, stress state and strain-rate. The effect of these variables on porosity kinetics is captured by the Cocks–Ashby model; however, the Cocks–Ashby model does not account for material degradation directly. This work uses a yield criteria to form a degradation function that is consistent with Cocks–Ashby porosity kinetics and is a function of porosity, stress state and strain-rate dependence. Approximations of this degradation function for pure hydrostatic stress states are also explored.
