This book is devoted to the deformation and failure in metallic materials, summarizing the results of a research programme financed by the "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft". It presents the recent engineering as well as mathematical key aspects of this field for a broad community. Its main focus is on the constitutive behaviour as well as the damage and fracture of metallic materials, covering their mathematical foundation, modelling and numerics, but also relevant experiments and their verification.
