To determine the impact of cohesive law shapes on the modeling of interfacial debonding in lithium-ion battery electrodes, analytical methods based on different cohesive models for the debonding process have been developed individually. Three different cohesive laws, namely, triangular, trapezoidal, and rectangular laws, have been employed. To ensure comparability, the cohesive strength and the fracture toughness have been set to be identical for different cohesive laws. The evaluation of debonding onset has suggested that the cohesive law shape affects the modeling results only when the interface is ductile. The largest possible difference for the triangular law and the rectangular law on the debonding onset has been estimated. A discussion for specific electrodes has also been provided.
