    Abstract A novel multiscale algorithm based on the higher-order continuum at both micro- and macrostructural level is proposed for the consideration of the quasi-brittle damage response of heterogeneous materials. Herein, the microlevel damage is modelled by the degradation of the homogenized stress and tangent stiffness tensors, which are then upscaled to govern the localization at the macrolevel. The C1 continuity finite element employing a modified case of Mindlin’s form II strain energy density is derived for the softening analysis. To the authors’ knowledge, the finite element discretization based on the strain gradient theory is applied for the modeling of damage evolution… More >
