Review of Continuum Mechanics Factors in Adhesive Fracture

  • M. L. Williams


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.
