Comparisons of EVICD predictions to the results of our recently performed tests and to results as reported in the literature have shown that the differences between the predictions and the experimental results were typically less than a factor of 3. EVICD comprises an input section which is open to nearly all formats of loading data in engineering practice. Although the multisurface material model after Mro'z-Garud was originally introduced into E
