# External Crack Due to Thermal Effects in an Infinite Elastic Solid with a Cylindrical Inclusion

## Abstract

This paper deals with the state of stress in an infinite elastic solid with an external crack which is subjected to a prescribed temperature distribution. The infinite elastic medium consists of two materials which are separated by a cylindrical surface. It is assumed that there is perfect bonding at the common cylindrical surface. By assuming a suitable representation for the temperature function, the heat conduction problem is reduced to the solution of a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. Then, using suitable biharmonic functions as thermoelastic potentials, the thermoelastic problem is also reduced to the solution of a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. Both the integral equations are solved numerically. The numerical values of the stress intensity factor are displayed graphically.
