Abstract: In this paper, intergranular microfracture evolution in polycrystalline brittle materials is simulated using a cohesive grain boundary integral formulation. A linear cohesive law is used for modelling multiple microcracking initiation and propagation under mixed mode failure conditions, encountering the stochastic e=ects of the grain location, morphology and orientation. Furthermore, in cases where crack surfaces come into contact, slide or separate, fully frictional contact analysis is performed.
