For testing and analysing crack propagation under fatigue loading, crack onset precedes any crack growth. In this work, crack onset during the testing of Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) specimens is studied. The insert cycle experiments provide an experimental reference for our analysis using finite element methods. The insert cycle is analysed using three different methods, which are the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT), Cohesive Zone Modelling (CZM) and a combined method. In the combined method, the crack onset is modelled using CZM and propagation using VCCT. In other words, we strive to model the crack nucleation phenomenon in the adhesive bond of DCB specimen.
