Cohesize Zone Modeling (CZM) – Contact Debonding

    • Raghu79

      Hi everyone, I'm working on a project to simulate adhesive bonding failure and studied that CZM is a suitable method to obtain the maximum load for debonding failure. I have input the necessary parameters but I can't seem to achieve the failure load of the model. Does anyone know what can be done to observe the failure? Will I be able to achieve it just by manipulating the parameters or is there something I need to input/add. My end-goal is to plot the load vs displacement curve with failure. Thanks in advance. Attached are some images of my project. Your help and guidance is very much appreciated.

      The load displacement curve looks alright - elastic loading till a peak point followed by softening. What do you mean by "cant observe failure"? Also your maximum tangential contact stress is 1E-30 Pa, which doesn't look realistic. This could be the problem.
      Regards Ishan.

      Thanks for your prompt reply. My apologies, I will change the contact stress.
      What I meant by the failure is to observe a "fracture" when the adhesive bond fails. I have attached an image for your reference and would like to achieve the similar curve. Am I able to achieve this kind of curve? Your suggestion is very much appreciated. Thank you.

      hey Raghu!

      the work that you have shown here plays a key part in my project

      could you please let me know how you have achieved the load vs displacement curve

      1) how did you model your adhesive

      2) why can't I see any deflection in my curve, it was going straight up!!

      can you share me few insights, as you have gone through this,

      Thank you in Advance
