Simulations of indentation delamination of ductile films on elastic substrates are performed. A cohesive zone model accounts for initiation and growth of interface delaminations and a strain gradient plasticity framework for the length scale dependence of plastic deformation. With the cohesive zone model and the strain gradient formulation two length scales are introduced in to the analysis.
