The paper studies the distribution of the mode I, II, and III stress-intensity factors (SIFs) for a penny-shaped interface crack in a bimaterial under normal harmonic loading. The dependence of SIFs on the type of a wave (compression-dilation or shear) loading frequency, and the mechanical properties of the bimaterial is analyzed.
