N2 - Mechanical interfaces are theoretical and computational tools able to properly reproduce then progressive delamination of composite structures. Scientific literature is rich of interface models, mostly developed in small displacements, whereas a few of them assess the problem in a geometrically nonlinear setting.In the present paper interface formulation is rigorously developed in a geometrically nonlinear setting, and the relevant interface constitutive relations are defined in the local reference with normal and tangential axes to the middle surface in the current configuration. The interface is defined as a zero thickness layer with tractions acting between the two connected surfaces. Membrane forces are assumed negligible and separation displacement is assumed to remain small, at least up to full debonding. Under this “constitutive” hypothesis rotational equilibrium is implicitly verified.
