Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of Rubber-to-Steel Bimaterial Bonded Interface Cracking Based on Cohesive Element
  Abstract

Presented herein is a finite element investigation into the damage mechanism of the adhesive interface of the rubber-steel bimaterial. The cohesive element layer is used at the interface to simulate the initial loading, initiation and propagation of the damage. From the simulation results, it is found that interface strength exert significant effects on the crack formation in the interface. Smaller interface strength could lead to crack initiation more easily.
