WANG, S., HARVEY, C.M. and GUAN, L., 2017. The mechanics of interface fracture:(2) cohesive interfaces. IN: Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Fracture, Rhodes Greece, 18-23 June 2017.
The authors’ existing mixed-mode partition theories for rigid interfaces are extended to nonrigid
cohesive interfaces for layered isotropic double cantilever beams. The two sets of orthogonal
pure modes for rigid interfaces coincide with each other for cohesive interfaces.
Excellent agreement is observed between the analytical theory and finite element simulations.
