## 1 Introduction

Propagation of a crack involves processes that occur at different scales in a 'cohesive zone', a 'process zone', and a 'far-field zone' (Fig. 1). At the crack tip, the cohesive zone is associated with the material that actually separates during crack growth. As this material is deformed, it exerts forces across the putative crack surfaces until failure occurs, and the forces drop to zero as the crack advances. In other words, the deformation and failure of the material in the cohesive zone...

By using this approach, many important issues that are frequently encountered in the fracture testing of adhesive joints, yet are usually ignored by traditional fracture...
