Abstract: A nonlocal elastoplastic damage theory recently proposed by Valanis (1992) is implemented into a finite element wave code. The model retains hyperbolicity even under strain softening, thus eliminating mesh-sensitivity. Convergence and mesh insensitivity are demonstrated numerically by solving the problem considered by Sandler and Wright (1984).
