This paper provides a review of findings of a comprehensive research effort by the authors and collaborators in the area of experiments, analysis and simulation of mixed-mode ductile fracture. Topics include mixed-mode Arcan stable tearing tests, the mixed-mode CTOD fracture criterion and its basis, normalization of ductile crack tip fields, ductile failure envelope, crack tunneling and slanting, effects of stress constraint, custom 2D and 3D mixed-mode crack growth simulation codes, and simulations of mixed-mode stable tearing crack growth tests.
