In this paper, a new versatile method for analizing a semi-infinite body with an arbitrary surface or internal crack under complex loading conditions was proposed. New numerical results were obtained in many cases, and compared with the other solutions. As a result, it was found that the present method is very powerful and gives highly accurate results with no extrapolation procedures even in the case of coarse meshes.
