The contact interaction of the opposite faces of a crack under oblique incidence of a harmonic wave is considered. The problem is solved by the method of boundary integral equations using an iterative algorithm. The contact forces and the displacement discontinuity on the crack faces are studied for different values of the friction coefficient.
