In this study, a method to predict J-R curve of SUS316 material using FE damage analysis is proposed. As experimental data, tensile and fracture toughness test results of cold worked SUS316 are used. The damage model used in this study is multi-axial fracture strain model and the model is determined by simulating the tensile and fracture toughness test according to the procedure in R6 code [1]. A pre-strain constant is newly introduced to consider pre-strain damage caused by the pre-strain, and the damage for various degrees of pre-strain are calculated. As a result, the predicted J-R curves using FE damage model show good agreement with the experimental data.
