    Abstract Cohesive Zone Models (CZMs)\ are increasingly being used to simulate fracture and fragmentation processes in metallic, polymeric, ceramic materials and composites thereof. Instead of an infinitely sharp crack envisaged in linear elastic fracture mechanics, CZM assumes the presence of a fracture process zone where the energy is transferred from external work both in the forward and the wake regions of the propagating crack. In this paper, some of the mechanistic and computational issues in the application of CZM \ to model failure and fracture in real materials are discussed. In specific we address the issue More >
