Exfoliation of a Rigid Linear Inclusion under Static Loading

  • M. M. Kundrat


We present a solution of the problem of exfoliation of a linear rigid inclusion in a homogeneous isotropic matrix. It is assumed that prefracture strips appear under loading near the tips of the inclusion. They are modeled by the jumps of tangential displacements along the matrix–inclusion interface. The problem is reduced to the Cauchy problem for a first-order differential equation. We also perform the numerical analysis of the problem.
