This paper concerns fracture dynamic problems for elastic cracked solids with allowance for crack faces contact interaction. The contact problem for a penny-shaped crack with an initial opening under normally incident tension-compression wave is solved by the method of boundary integral equations. The solution is compared with those obtained without allowance for crack faces contact interaction for various values of the initial opening.
