Abstract: 

In this talk I describe the model of peeling test, which provides a good simplified sample for the study of an evolutionary crack in the theory of linearly elastic fracture mechanics. This model is based on the wave equation in time dependent domain, coupled with suitable energy balance established by Griffith's criterion. We discuss some recent results and present possible future developments of the topic.
