Abstract

The previous chapter gradually developed the techniques available for the solution of plane crack problems using dislocations. We have dealt with both buried and surface-breaking open cracks. This has permitted a gradual expansion of the repertoire of solutions which may be found. In this chapter we will look at a range of further topics, to enhance the versatility of the approach yet further, whilst retaining the same basic underlying principles. Specifically, we will look at closed cracks, kinked and curved cracks, cracks in finite geometries, and the modelling of crack-tip plasticity.
