The present work involves a numerical modelling of the Embedded Process Zone (EPZ) by utilizing the elastoplastic Mode I and Mode II fracture models for the simulation of plastically deforming adhesive joints. A traction-separation law was developed separately for Mode I and Mode II. For the analysis of the mixed-mode fracture processes, the cohesive zones in Mode I and Mode II fracture were assumed uncoupled. The experimental programme involved the fabrication and testing of Double Strap Joints (DSJs) and Single Lap Joints (SLJs). By fitting the numerical results to the experimental ones, the basic cohesive parameters of the problem were defined.
