Effect of Residual stresses on the Interfacial Fracture Toughness of polymer/Metal Interface

When a bi-material sample for the characterization of interfacial fracture toughness is manufactured, the sample is not usually stress-free at room temperature. If an interface between a metallic substrate and a polymeric adhesive is considered, there are essentially two sources of residual stresses for a dry sample at room temperature:

Interfacial moisture diffusion using cohesive zone elements

Hello every body,

As most of you know, fracture mechanics of polymer materials needs a special consideration of the viscoelastic material properties. Especially under thermomechanical loading the role of glass transition temperature T_g is very important. That is why people try to characterize the material with different methods including stress relaxation based on Time-Temperature superposition or DMA test.
