Review of Continuum Mechanics Factors in Adhesive Fracture
The possibility of treating adhesive fracture as an engineering analysis problem in continuum mechanics has been emphasized in previous reviews, with applications to designs which utilize bonded surfaces and/or various composite materials. Cost-effective use of this analysis ability will ultimately depend, of course, upon the accuracy of fracture and structural life prediction, as well as the availability of methods to conduct non-destructive examination.
