There are many interfaces between biological materials with a structural functionality, where their mechanical behaviour is crucial for their own performance. Advanced tools such as cohesive surface models are being used to simulate the failure and degradation of this kind of biological interactions. The goal of this paper, in a first step, is to present some cohesive surface models that include damage and repair in interfaces and its application to different biomechanical problems. Secondly, we discuss about the main challenges that we have to improve in the modelling of interfaces for a mechanobiological approach.
