Mode III Yoffe Dynamic Crack Problem on the Interface between Dissimilar Materials


Article Preview

A moving crack in a laminated structure with free boundary subjected to anti-plane shear loading is investigated in this paper. Using the bonding conditions of the interface between different media, all the quantities in our question have been represented with a single unknown function, and the problem is transformed into a dual integrated equation with the method of Fourier transform. The equation is solved using Schmidt method. Finally the numerical results show the relationships among the dynamic stress intensity factor and crack velocity, the height of different laminated material, shear moduli of different laminated material.
