The decohesion phase may present as one of the four possible scenarios whereby the crack will propagate as follows: (i) the plastically weaker material (WM) to the plastically stronger material (SM), WM-SM, (ii) the plastically weaker material (WM) to the plastically stronger interlayer (SI), WM-SI, (iii) the plastically stronger material (SM) to the plastically weaker material (WM), SM-WM, and (iv) the plastically stronger material (SM) to the plastically weaker interlayer (WI), SM-WI.
When pore and oxide sizes are larger than competing microstructural weak links (such as eutectic silicon particles), crack initiation life can be ignored.
