Paper Title:
Dynamic Stress Intensity Factor for a Radial Crack on a Circular Cavity in a Piezoelectric Medium
  Abstract

The problem of dynamic stress intensity factor is investigated theoretically in present paper for a radial crack on a circular cavity in an infinite piezoelectric medium, which is subjected to time-harmonic incident anti-plane shearing. First, a pair of electromechanically coupled Green’s functions are constructed which indicate the basic solutions for a semi-infinite piezoelectric medium with a semi-circular cavity. Second, based on the crack-division technique and conjunction technique, integral equations for the unknown stresses’ solution on the conjunction surface is established, which are related to the dynamic stress intensity factor at the crack tip. Third, the analytical expression on dynamic stress intensity factor at the crack tip is obtained. At last, some calculating cases are plotted to show how the frequencies of incident wave, the piezoelectric characteristic parameters of the material and the geometry of the crack and the circular cavity influence upon the dynamic stress intensity factors. While some of the calculating results are compared with the same situation about a straight crack and with static solutions.
