The object of research is a bimetallic composite material with a thin intermediate layer of aluminum. The aim of the work is to determine the features of the stress-strain state at the interlayer boundaries of a steel-aluminum composite material with a thin layer using the computational experiment method and to calculate separation resistance using the energy criterion. The stress-strain state along the boundaries of the joint at delamination is determined from the results of modeling the deformation of axisymmetric samples made of a steel-aluminum bimetallic composite material with a thin intermediate layer of aluminum. A series of computational experiments with varying the critical rate of elastic energy release under separation conditions, including under the combined influence of low temperatures and static loads, is implemented. The energy criterion is used to evaluate the stress level that leads to the separation of the bimetallic compound. The dependence of the separation resistance along the ring contour on the critical rate of elastic energy release, which is variable in the range of 0.1 to 0.5 N/mm, is calculated. It is established that, for the studied variants of the computational experiment, a rigid stress state with a predominance of normal tensile stresses is realized at the place of delamination onset.

Acknowledgments: We appreciate the effort of Dr. Berezin, senior professor of the Chair of Information Tech-nologies and Design Automation, UrFU, in making computational experiments.
