Force-displacement curve in the case n = 2. The elastic part of the solution is on part [OA] of the curve. The part [AB] corresponds to the development of local damage whereas part [BC] corresponds to both local and non-local damage development. Finally, part [CD] is governed only by non-local damage. Letters A, B and C are located at T
=1.351 and T
=1.368, respectively. The latter being the limit load.
