TRANSIENT RESPONSE OF AN INTERFACE-CRACK IN A LAYERED PLATE.

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

In this paper, the transient response of an interface crack, in a two layered plate subjected to an antiplane stress field, is analytically computed. The problem is formulated in terms of semi-infinite integrals following the technique developed by Neerhoff (1979). It has been shown that the major steps of Neerhoff's technique, which was originally developed for layered half-spaces, can also be applied to layered plate problems. An improved method for manipulation of semi-infinite singular integrals is also presented here. Finally, the new method is coded in FORTRAN program and numerical results for a sample problem are presented.
