Delamination Fracture Analyses of Linear-Elastic Functionally Graded Beams
crack in a functionally graded beam of rectangular cross-section loaded in eccentric tension. An additional analysis was performed by using the beam strain energy for verification. The effects of material gradient and crack length on the delamination were evaluated.
