The evolution of microstructure occurs in the deformation of metals via texture evolution. The effect of the microstructural evolution, i.e., anisotropy evolution, on the free end shear problem is investigated. An anisotropic ductile fracture model that takes into account the evolution of the orthotropic axes in the matrix is employed to perform the above task. With the model, a well-known experiment that provides the evidence of anisotropy evolution, the free end cyclic torsion test, is simulated. For the simulation of the free end cyclic torsion test, an explicit numerical scheme for the free end shear simulation is proposed and performed to reproduce the experimental result of the free end torsion test. The simulation result reveals the physics of the shear damage process, which is that porosity evolves in the shear deformation of (induced) anisotropic materials due to the evolution of anisotropy. A series of the free end shear simulations reveal the effect of the interaction among the matrix anisotropy, porosity and void shape onto the deformation pattern and the ductile damage process of porous materials.
