The Interaction of a Cylindrical Elastic Inclusion with Semicircular Disconnected Curve and Linear Cracks in an Homogeneous Medium by SH-Waves
The scattering of SH waves by a cylindrical elastic inclusion with a semicircular disconnected curve and linear cracks in an homogeneous medium is investigated and the solution of dynamic stress intensity factor is given by Green’s function, complex function method. Firstly, we can divide the space into up-and-down parts along the X axis. In the lower half space, a new suitable Green’s function for the present problem is constructed.In the upper half space, the Green’s function has been given by reference . Thereby the semicircular disconnected curve can be constructed when the two parts are bonded along the interface and the linear cracks can be constructed using the method of crack-division and the integral equations can be obtained by the use of continuity conditions at the X axis. Finally, some examples and results of dynamic stress intensify factor are given and the influence of the parameters is discussed.
