The effects of shear on delamination in layered materials

  title={The effects of shear on delamination in layered materials},
  author={S.-Z. Li and J. Wang and Michael D. Thouless},
The effect of transverse shear on delamination in layered, isotropic, linear-elastic materials has been determined. In contrast to the effects of an axial load or a bending moment on the energy-release rate for delamination, the effects of shear depend on the details of the deformation in the crack-tip region. It therefore does not appear to be possible to deduce rigorous expressions for the shear component of the energy-release rate based on steady-state energy arguments or on any type of… CONTINUE READING
