Interfacial delamination is a key reliability challenge in composites and micro-electronic systems due to (high density) integration of dissimilar materials. Predictive finite element models are used during the design and optimization stage to minimize delamination failures, however, they requires a relevant interface model to capture the (irreversible) crack initiation and propagation behavior observed in experiments. Therefore, a set of experimentalnumerical tools is presented to enable accurate characterization of delamination mechanism(s) and prediction of the interface mechanics.
