The use of multi-layered composites in the aircraft, automotive, and electronics industries is becoming more common as performance requirements exceed the capabilities of homogeneous materials. As a result, the need to assess their failure is critical. Diffusion bonded joints, thermal-barrier and wear resistant coatings, and thin films in VLSI electronics are three examples. In each of these cases, elastic and plastic mismatch between layers, when combined with thermal and/or mechanical loading, results in geometry dependent failure modes ...
