We have devised a crack-tracking methodology for general crack paths in elasto-damaging materials based on the regularized extended finite element method. The resulting procedure is in-between nonlocal models, where the discontinuity surface is replaced by a finite width zone, and cohesive zone models, where the discontinuous regime is governed by a traction-separation law.
