[en] By regularizing sharp cracks within a pure continuum setting, phase-damage models offer the ability to capture crack nucleation as well as crack propagation. Crack branching and coalescence can furthermore be described without any additional efforts, as geometrical descriptions of the cracks are not required. In this contribution, we extend our previous phase-field model for rate-dependent fracture of rubbers in a finite strain setting (Loew et al., 2019) to describe damage under cyclic loading. The model is derived from the balance of mechanical energy and introduces a fatigue damage source as a function of the accumulated viscous dissipation under cyclic loading. We use uniaxial cyclic tension to present the influence of the fatigue material parameters and to confirm the model’s energy balance. The parameters are subsequently identified using monotonic and cyclic experiments of a plane stress nature. Finally, the model is validated by separate experiments, which demonstrate that the model accurately predicts (fatigue) crack nucleation as well as propagation.
