Dynamic fracture along bimaterial and heterogeneous interfaces

Using a spectral resolution of the elastodynamic boundary integral equations, this poster is presenting the effect of tougher heterogeneities along a planar fracture plane. A centered crack propagating along a 1-D heterogeneous interface under mixed-mode loading is studied and the two observed regimes of propagation are presented.
