The problem of adhesively bonded sheets, one of which is cracked, is formulated by the utilization of integral transform methods. The objective of the investigation is to calculate the stress-intensity factor at the crack tip for the cracked sheets. Results are obtained when the cracked sheet has a single crack and an array of identical, equally spaced, copla-nar cracks. Results tend to indicate that the growth of crack implies a reduction in the stress-intensity factor.
