In the present study, a hypoelastic–plastic formulation of porous crystal plasticity with a regularized version of Schmid’s law is proposed. The equation describing the effect of the voids on plasticity is modified to allow for an explicit analytical solution for the effective resolved shear stress. The regularized porous crystal plasticity model is implemented as a material model in a finite element code using the cutting plane algorithm. Fracture is described by element erosion at a critical porosity. The proposed model is used for two test cases of two- and three-dimensional polycrystals deformed in tension until full fracture is achieved. The simulations demonstrate the capability of the proposed model to account for the interaction between different modes of strain localization, such as shear bands and necking, and the initiation and propagation of ductile fracture in large scale polycrystal models with detailed grain description and realistic boundary conditions.
