In this work, a new continuous-discontinuous approach is presented. This new technique is based on a non-local model (such as continuum damage or plasticity) based on non- local displacements. On the one hand, this work deals with the continuous analysis. Although the aim is to develop a technique useful with any underlying continuous model, only the damage model has been used until now. The goal is to analyse the regularisation capabilities of the non-local damage model with 2D elements. Therefore, the implementation of this model is carried out. On the other hand, the discontinuous technique is presented.
