Stress State Near a Small-Scale Crack at the Corner Point of the Interface of Media

  • Published:
International Applied Mechanics Aims and scope

The stress state of a piecewise-homogeneous isotropic elastic body near a small-scale mode I crack at the corner point of the interface of media is analyzed. The exact solution of the corresponding elasticity problem is obtained using the Wiener–Hopf method.
