Abstract

This paper is concerned with the tension problems of a semi-infinite solid with an embedded rectangular crack and a rectangular surface crack as well as an infinite solid with a rectangular crack as a special case. The analyses are based on the body force method, and are performed by generalizing the previous analyses of an embedded elliptical crack and a semi-elliptical surface crack. Furthermore, approximate results are given for a finite-thickness plate with an embedded rectangular crack, by superposing the effects of the free surfaces obtained in the above analysis for a semi-infinite solid.
