Abstract

Main features of crack dynamics in a plate under bending, and methods of solution to the problems in this field are considered. The uniform elastic plate lying on incompressible fluid is assumed as a model of an ice cover. It is shown that there are two types of bending waves in a plate with a crack: the plane bending wave and the edge bending wave, and each of these waves has a positive lower limit of group velocity provided the plate interacts with the fluid. This opens a way to an asymptotic solution for the nonuniform crack speed problem, to extension of the known technique developed for the plane problem of such kind to the systems with nonuniform phase velocity of waves.
