A stochastic approach, the Ising model combined with Monte Carlo simulation, is employed to study the process of a tongue tear process of coated fabrics. The complicated mechanisms involved can be realistically simulated with a relatively simple algorithm. The important factors, especially the interphase between the coating and the fabric, influencing the tear behavior, formation and failure of the del-zone can be represented by the corresponding coefficients in an energy expression of the system. The results of parametric studies are in good qualitative agreement with the behavior of real systems, indicating the usefulness of this approach in the studies of similar interfacial phenomena.
