This contribution gives an overview of different simulation methods for transient events and damages induced in tungsten. The investigations were focussed on the resulting crack networks and special attention was paid to crack distance, width and depth. The results indicate that the different techniques show, in general, similar damage behaviours and the same damage thresholds.
