The paper focuses on the establishment of the damage law consistent with the adopted physical interpretation of the damage. The model is developed within the framework of the general thermodynamics theory. In addition, the model incorporates a rigorous mathematical description of the damage growth kinematics including both cleavage and slip modes.
