Abstract

Interfacial fibrilation is a typical mechanism that frequently occurs during delamination of a polymer coating from a steel substrate. It involves large displacements at the interface as well as large deformations in the bulk material. Classical small displacement cohesive zone formulations fail to describe such large deformations correctly. Therefore, a generic cohesive zone model is introduced that is suitable to describe both uniform and non-uniform fracture at an interface with large deformations in the delaminating bulk and large displacements at the crack tip.
