Delamination in visco-elastic materials with thermal effects



This contribution reports on a model describing the evolution of brittle delamination between two visco-elastic bodies Ω+ and Ω, bonded along a prescribed contact surface ΓC, over a fixed time interval (0, T); a detailed discussion and a rigorous mathematical analysis can be found in [1].
