History of DAMASK
DAMASK started as a user material subroutine for crystal plasticity to be used in commercial FEM software at the the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung. Now it is an open source multi-physics software and development takes place all over the world.
Future of DAMASK
Current work on DAMASK is focused on:
1) Extending the mesh solver which is based on the FEM and allows flexible discretization of the computation domain
2) Improving the damage models
3) Implementing models for chemistry and related thermo-chemo-mechanical interactions.
