The mechanics of interface fracture:(2) cohesive interfaces

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.
