Solutions are given for an interface crack having no-slip zones near the crack tips and whose surfaces are loaded in pure shear and combined tension-shear. The interface crack is found to open at two places with part of the smooth region in contact, provided that the tension/shear ratio is small enough. The crack tip stress-intensity factors are related by the Dundurs' constant. Numerical calculations were performed with material constants which pertain to an example of the cancellous bone/PMMA interfaces.
