Abstract

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, coplanar cracks. Results tend to indicate that the growth of crack implies a reduction in the stress-intensity factor.
