The presence of a void or secondary particle generates a stress concentration and plays a crucial role in both the mechanical response and damage evolution of metals. This work presents local stress and strain field predictions in a single crystalline matrix near a spherical void or hard inclusion. To characterize the effect of a material inhomogeneity, different modeling techniques at various length scales are utilized, such as an isotropic J2 plasticity finite element model, a coupled dislocation dynamics-finite element model, a crystal plasticity finite element model, and a phase-field fracture model. In this talk, simulation results from each model will be presented with the aim of correlating the defect microstructure characteristics and the macroscopic material behavior. In addition, results will be compared with the intention of bridging simulation length scales to obtain a better understanding of the influence of crystallographic orientation and its effect on failure predictions.
