Abstract

Three-dimensional problems in the dynamic fracture mechanics of materials with interface cracks are considered as nonclassical problems of fracture mechanics. Physically correct results in fracture mechanics in the case where the interaction of the crack edges must be taken into account are analyzed. The linear (classical) and nonlinear (nonclassical) problems of dynamic fracture mechanics for materials with interface cracks are formulated using the above approaches. A method for solving three-dimensional linear dynamic problems based on boundary integral equations for piecewise-homogeneous materials and the boundary-element method is outlined. This method can be used for incremental solution of nonlinear problems. The method involves the regularization of hypersingular integrals. New classes of three-dimensional linear dynamic problems for circular and elliptic interface cracks are solved. Numerical values of stress intensity factors obtained with the linear problem formulation are the first step toward calculating them in the nonlinear formulation. The first results obtained in solving nonlinear dynamic problems for interface cracks with interacting faces are briefly analyzed
