3D elastodynamics of an interface crack

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPublished conference contribution


The paper investigates elastodynamic response of inter-component cracks in composites with the focus on the effect of crack closure leading to contact interaction of the opposite crack faces. Application of boundary integral equations to the problem of microcracks between two dissimilar half-spaces under harmonic loading is studied in detail. The distributions of the displacements and tractions at the interface and the crack surface are obtained and analysed. The stress intensity factors are also computed.
