In this paper, modern methods for estimating the damage parameter of metal structural materials presented in the form of a scalar quantity are analyzed. A model is developed for describing the kinetics of accumulation of scattered lesions and the criterion of the limiting state for the case of simple stretching, based on the modernized approach proposed by N. Bonora. Based on the energy approaches and approaches that take into account the reduction in the elastic modulus of the first kind for structural materials D16T, VT22, Steel 45, 30HGSA, 12X18H10T, 07H16N6, 15HCND, 18X2N4VA, and AMg2, damage accumulation curves were obtained in the case of simple stretching. The proposed model and the criterion were experimentally verified, the error in the calculated and experimental data was estimated.
