Hypoplastic interface model and UMAT – FRIC interface
Frictional interface model by Stutz et al. (2016, 2017) for granular soils based on Hypoplasticity using the hypoplastic UMAT Implementation.
The original umat implementation has been developed by Claudio Tamagnini in 2005. Subsequently, it has been developed and updated to new models by David Mašín. The subroutine was then used by Henning Stutz in development of the new interface model implementation.
