The presentation of the simulating method of the refractory damage is the subject of this paper. Based on the assumption of uniform temperature, the two kinds of load of compression and tension are endowed with two different kinds of damage models. In the tension state, the matrix is gradually amalgamated with stomata, at the same time, the aggregate is “swallowed” by the amalgamated matrix; On the other hand, in the compression state, only the matrix is amalgamated with stomata and the aggregate remains unchanged. According to the hypothesis proposed, the damage is simulated by the improved Generalized Self-Consistent Scheme (GSCS). Contrast to the experimental data, the numerical results indicate that the introduction of the damage hypothesis is feasible.
