A solution to the problem for a periodic or arbitrary set of cracks with contact zones located at the interface of two dissimilar isotropic materials is constructed in a closed form. By presenting mechanical fields through the piecewise analytical functions, the problem is reduced to a homogeneous combined periodic Dirichlet-Riemann boundary value problem, a solution of which is obtained in a closed form.
