The work of Evans and Hutchinson (1989) on micromechanics modeling of combined mode fracture is used as the basis for proposing an expression for combined Mode I and Mode II fracture toughness of brittle monolithic materials as well as bimaterial interfaces. The results of the proposed expression are compared with experimental data.
