  • Adhesive contact, cohesive zone delamination, brittle Griffith-type delamination, coupled rate-independent/rate-dependent system




This contribution presents recent results in the modeling and the analysis of delamination problems. It addresses adhesive contact, brittle, and cohesive zone models both in a quasistatic and a viscous, dynamic setting for the bulk part. Also different evolution laws for the delaminating surface are discussed.
