Baz. ant and Pijaudier-Cabot use a (local) damage function given by


where h — 20.5 (MPa)"1 and Yt = 8.54 MPa. With E = 32 GPa, they analyzed the initiation of localization at various uniform" strains. For the particular strain = 0.003, they found that the size of the localization zone was h. K.21 for a bell-shaped weight function. Verify that this is consistent with the results predicted by the nonlocal strength theory of the second kind. To this end, compute first Vo and По’, then compute 7 from (13.1.49) and use the curve in Fig. 13.1.6d to find hjl.
