Material: A variable containing material properties Material.E (modulus of elasticity), Material.v (poisson ratio), Material.f_y (yield stress), Material.g_f (normalized fracture energy), Material.Ep_eqv_0 (equivelent plastic strain at which damage initiates)
Material_State: A history variable containing material state variables at previous increment or iteration. it includes Material_State.s (stress vector) , Material_State.s_eff (effective stress), Material_State.e (strain vector), Material_State.k (hardening parameter), Material.k_D (maximium equivalent plastic strain) and Material.d (damage).
Initial values for these history variables should be zeros
IMPORTANT: for this model, this variable should be called from the last converged state of material ((i.e. end of previous increment not from the last iteration) in order to avoid spurious unloading. See Section 6.2 in Crisfrield book [1]
e: Strain vector in the current iteration.
Material_State2: A history variable containing material state variables at current iteration
D: Tangent constitutive matrix
