Title: Preface to the special volume on the second Sandia Fracture Challenge

In this study, ductile failure of structural metals is a pervasive issue for applications such as automotive manufacturing, transportation infrastructures, munitions and armor, and energy generation. Experimental investigation of all relevant failure scenarios is intractable, requiring reliance on computation models. Our confidence in model predictions rests on unbiased assessments of the entire predictive capability, including the mathematical formulation, numerical implementation, calibration, and execution.
