Suiker, ASJ and Fleck, NA (2005) Failure mechanisms in brittle laminates. 11th International Conference on Fracture 2005, ICF11, 2. pp. 888-893.Full text not available from this repository.
Steady-state tunneling and plane-strain delamination of an H-shape crack are examined for elastic, isotropic multi layers. Both tunneling and delamination are analysed by employing linear elastic fracture mechanics within a 2D finite element framework. Failure maps are produced to reveal the sensitivity of cracking path to the relative toughness of layer and interface, and to the stiffness mismatch of layers.
