Abstract: In this paper the delamination problem for laminated plates is studied. A nonmonotone multivalued law is introduced in order to describe the interlaminar bonding forces. This law is written as the generalized gradient in the sense of F. H. Clarke of an appropriately defined nonconvex superpotential. Moreover, monotone boundary conditions of the subdifferential type are assumed to hold. The problem is formulated as a variational-hemivariational inequality expressing the principle of virtual work in inequality form. By using compactness and monotonicity arguments, the existence and the approximation of the solution of this inequality are investigated.
