The dataset contains a material routine (UMAT.f) and a user-defined hardening routine (UHARD.f) to be used in conjunction with FE-program ABAQUS. These subroutines enable to take into account gradient-enhanced damage. A special ductile damage model is implemented. Different examples (input-files) are given to conduct convergence studies (shear band specimen, plate-with-hole, double-notched tensile test). More information about usage is given in the short-documentation (Doc.pdf).
