A method to Extract Interface Stress Intensity Factors for Bimaterial Problems Using Interlayers
A numerical method is presented here to determine stress intensity factors for interface cracks in plane, isotropic, elastic bimaterial fracture problems. The method relies on considering a companion problem wherein a very thin elastic interlayer with a crack, is artificially inserted between the tw...
