This paper presents the application of a viscoplastic damage model for the lifetime prediction of a typical rocket combustion chamber structure. The material modeling is motivated by extension of the classical rheological model for elastoplasticity with Armstrong-Frederick kinematic hardening into a viscoplastic model. The coupling with damage is performed using the concept of effective stress and the principle of strain equivalence. The material parameters are identified based on experimental results for the high temperature copper alloy NARloy-Z, which is one of the typical combustion chamber wall materials. Finally the applicability of the model will be shown by means of sequentially coupled thermomechanical analyses.
