This is the DAMASK documentation for end users.

  • Usage provides an overview of the capabilities of DAMASK.

  • Worked examples are presented in Examples and Video Tutorials.

  • The complete documentation of the processing tools is given in Processing Tools.

  • Setting up a DAMASK simulation is done with the help of files given in specific File Formats.

The concept and the implemented models are described in detail in the following references:
