Multi-scale models based on computational homogenisation are nowadays developed for the simulation of complex materialbehaviour. The use of homogenisation techniques on finite-sized representative volume elements in the presence of quasi-brittledamage may lead to the presence of snap-backs in the macroscopic material response. A methodology to simulate this type ofresponse in the multi-scale technique is proposed, based on the control of the dissipation at the mesoscopic scale.
