Cohesive Zone Model of Mixed-Mode Debonding of a Laminated Composite

Jump to: navigation, search

Interfacial failure by delamination or debonding can be simulated with a Cohesive Zone Model (CZM). This example shows the implementation of a CZM with a bilinear traction-separation law. It is used to predict the mixed-mode softening onset and delamination propagation in a composite material.
