A concise overview is given of some recent developments, mainly by the Delft group, of numerical modelling of damage processes. Attention is paid to discrete methods, where all damage is lumped into interface elements, and to enhanced continuum theories, where higher-order terms, either in time or in space, are added to preserve well-posedness of the rate boundary value problem after the onset of softening.
