Abstract

Some aspects of splitting and delamination of composite materials from surface flaws are discussed. The system modelled is one of an elastically homogeneous material containing aligned interfaces. This simplified model, although missing some of the details that would be associated with elastic inhomogeneity, does permit a discussion of some of the factors that govern this type of delamination.
