Good morning everyone;

I am doing my PHD to study the delamination process of the atherosclerotic plaque. I am new user of Abaqus so i really need help to understand the delamination process using ABAQUS. I did some examples, especially the example ' Debonding behavior of a double cantilever beam'. I tried to understand the structure of the .inp file to create a model which corresponds to the steps given by this file. I found some diffucilties to understand many steps, so i really need a help from an expert who can help me a little or send me a good tutorial abt the delamination process.

Thank you and please if anyone has an idea about crack propagation or delamination please help me.
