Mode III stress intensity factors in an interfacial crack in dissimilar bonded materials

Abstract

The antiplane shear deformation problem of two edge-bonded dissimilar isotropic wedges is considered. In the case when the sum of the two apex angles is equal to 2π, the problem reduces to that of two edge-bonded dissimilar materials with an interfacial crack subjected to concentrated antiplane shear tractions on the crack faces. An explicit expression is extracted for the stress intensity factor at the crack tip. In the special cases of different combinations of the apex angles, the obtained expression for the stress intensity factor may be simplified and relations of a simpler form are given for the stress intensity factor. It is shown that the stress intensity factor is dependent on the material properties as well as the geometry and loading. However, in special cases of equal apex angles as well as the case of similar materials the dependency of the stress intensity factor on the material properties disappears.
