Abstract: This document serves as a user manual for the Tonge–Ramesh material model, implemented in EPIC, Alegra, and ALE3D. Each code can include portions of this manual as appropriate for the code-specific user manuals. It is updated from the user manual that appeared in Appendix B of the author's doctoral dissertation published by The Johns Hopkins University, to include input parameter changes since extracting the model from Uintah, the addition of a single surface granular flow model, and notes regarding the repackaging of the model as an Abaqus Umat for greater portability.
