This paper presents the numerical results for the asymptotic stress field and the fracture parameters at the tip of an inclined cracks terminating to a bi-material ceramic interface. The numerical analysis was carried out using FRANC2D/L fracture analysis code. A biaxial specimen was modeled for producing different mixed mode loads and two materials combinations of Al2O3 and ZrO₂ were considered. The influence of the material combination and applied mixed mode load on the singularity orders, stress distributions and stress intensity factors is highlighted.
