Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by accidents and often leads to permanent health issues or even death. Brain injury criteria are used for assessing the probability of TBI, if a certain mechanical load is applied. The currently used injury criteria in the automotive industry are based on global head kinematics. New methods, based on finite element(More)
Interfacial failure, mainly in the form of debonding or delamination of brittle interfaces, is one of the major sources of failure in microsystems that consist of multiple thin and stacked layers, manufactured using different materials. A cohesive zone model with a simple traction- separation law is employed to simulate the benchmark test of pure mode I(More)
A novel test frame configuration was developed and employed to design a new miniature mixed mode bending (MMMB) setup for in-situ characterization of interface delamination in miniature multi-layer structures to accomplish full range of mode mixities. This advanced setup is specially designed with sufficiently small dimensions to fit in a scanning electron(More)
