VFMFE

Using the variational approach to fracture mechanics and my parallel FE code, there is a wide range of  fracture mechanics problems  that can be solved.

Fracture of modified ASTM E1820

Fracture of double hole double notched sample

Brittle matrix fracture and debonding around a fiber

Bronkenshire Fracture Test

VFMFD

The following are some examples of my FD code that show the complex interaction of interlayer debonding and channel fracture in the film.
