The influence of the cohesive zone length on the crack driving force is quantified and analyzed in a representative system of particles dispersed in a matrix of a composite material. For heterogeneous material systems, e.g. particulate composites, it is known that as a crack approaches the particles, the crack driving force may increase ...

The fracture behaviour of joints bonded with a structural epoxy adhesive and bond line thicknesses of 0.1–4.5 mm has been studied. However, limited research is found on similar joints with thicker bond lines, which are relevant for maritime applications. Therefore, the effect of the adhesive bond line thickness, varying from 0.4 to 10.1 mm,...

In this paper, by considering the absorbed energy in the fracture process zone and extension of the minimum strain energy density theory for orthotropic materials, a new mixed mode I/II failure criterion was proposed. The applicability of the new criterion, to predict the crack growth in both laminated composites and wood species, was...
