    A simple finite element (FE) model was developed and utilized in this study to investigate how fracture energy can affect the cracking and debonding of thin concrete overlays subjected to environmental loads. It was confirmed that crack opening width, vertical lift-off, and debonding rate all decrease as the fracture energy across a joint increases or as the interfacial tensile bond increases.
