The paper investigates an edge crack that terminates at a slipping interface with a different material. The formulation is reduced to a singular integral equation. The integral equation is solved and the stress intensity factor extracted using a numerical method. Moreover, the asymptotic nature of the stresses at the open tip of the crack is studied.
