Peridynamic theory is employed to investigate crack propagation in a multi-layer thin-film structure of electronic packages and in single layer graphene sheets. A brief description of this non-local theory is presented. Crack propagation path in patterned multilayer thin-film structures predicted by the peridynamic theory is compared against measurements from cross-sectional nanoindentation experiments. Single layer graphene sheet simulation results are compared to molecular dynamic simulations.
