Mode III Interfacial Edge Crack in a Magnetoelectroelastic Bimaterial


Article Preview

This paper deals with a Mode III interfacial edge crack in a magnetoelectroelastic bimaterial subjected to line singularities such as an out-of-plane line force, a line electric charge, a line magnetic charge and a straight screw dislocation. The surfaces (including crack surfaces) of the bimateral are assumed to be electrically open and magnetically closed. The closed-form analytical solution to the problem is obtained by employing the complex variable approach in conjunction with the conformal mapping technique. The intensity factors of stress, electric displacement and magnetic induction are given explicitly. The obtained results can be used as the Green's function to solve more complicated problems.
