In the framework of lightweight structures, the bonded joints appear as a suitable solution for increasing the mass-to-strength ratio. However, the full understanding of the interface debonding is a key obstacle to be overcome in critical systems. For characterizing adhesive-to-adherend interface crack initiation, the three-point bending test has been shown as a useful test that provides an identifiable small round zone. The samples were manufactured using an aluminum alloy 2024-T3 etched with nitric acid. The adhesive consisted in an epoxy pre-polymer DGEBA, DETA amine and an organosilane GLYMO directly introduced in the mixture. A coupled stress and energy criterion was used for the assessment of the properties of the interfacial debonding, since a stress concentration appears near to the corner of the specimen. For a quick computation, the application of the coupled criterion (CC) used the macro-element technique. On the other hand, most finite–element-based software has already implemented the cohesive zone modeling (CZM). In this sense, the fracture parameters computed via CC were used for the assessment of cohesive zone modeling of adhesive-to-adherend interface crack initiation. The results of fracture initiation using the CZM showed a good agreement in a macroscale response with the experimental campaign, thus providing a useful tool for a rapid estimation of cracking initiation.
