The aim of this contribution is to present a series of organised benchmarks that helps at validating the robustness of the FE implementation of a constitutive relation, its pertinence with respect to experiments, and quantitative and qualitative comparisons of structural elements. It is applied to an isotropic damage model used for concrete, coupled with a non local gradient formulation to avoid a spurious description of strain localisation. After the elementary (uniaxial monotonic, cyclic or triaxial loading) and structural (three point bending tests) simulations, an industrial application is presented in the form of a representative structural volume of a containment building for French nuclear power plants.
