    Influence of Interfacial Delamination on Channel Cracking of Brittle Thin Films

    H. Mei, Y. Pang, and R. Huang, International Journal of Fracture 148, 331-342 (2007).

    Following a previous effort published in MRS Proceedings, we wrote a journal article of the same title, with more numerical results. While the main conclusions stay the same, a few subtle points are noted in this paper.
