In this project a novel way will be developed to numerically model delamination, debonding and peeling in layered structures using geometrically exact nonlinear beam-type finite elements for the layers, and a mixed-mode CZM for the interface, accounting for rate-dependence and large strains when needed, and implemented within an open-source and free-licence software.
