This paper is based on a ductile failure simulation under dynamic loading conditions using finite element (FE) analyses. Recently a simple finite element method in a quasi-static test has been proposed to implement fracture simulation based on the well-known stress modified fracture strain model. The stressmodified fracture strain model is determined to be incremental damage in terms of stress triaxiality and fracture strain for dimple fracture from tensile test result with FE analyses technique. Since dynamic loading effect is especially important to assess pipe with crack-like defect, this work propose the integrated model which combines quasi-static with dynamic loading effect. In order to validate stress-modified fracture strain model in dynamic loading conditions, this paper compares results of FE analysis using proposed method with strain dependent smooth bar tests and notch tensile tests using Johnson-Cook equation. In conclusion, the stress-modified fracture strain model criterion can be calibrated by FE analyses with strain rate dependent fracture toughness test results.
