Highlights

  • An efficient mixed-mode rate-dependent cohesive zone model is presented in detail.
  • Rate-dependent springs and damage elements are coupled to model mixed-mode fracture.
  • The model is implemented as a user-defined element in Abaqus.
  • The model results agree well with test results for a wide range of strain rates.
  • The accuracy of the model is similar to that of a fractional viscoelastic CZM.
