Review of Methods for Calculating Fracture Parameters for Interface Crack Problems
The problem of an interface crack between two isotropic, orthotropic, or anisotropic materials has attracted attention from researchers because of applications in bonding problems involving these materials. This paper reviews some of the aspects of calculation of fracture parameters for these crack configurations.
