Abstract

A method is presented to evaluate quantitatively the reflection of elastic waves by a distribution of coplanar cracks. The method is based on a novel calculation of crack-opening volumes. For a plane containing a large number of cracks, closed form expressions have been derived for the reflection and transmission coefficients as well as for the stress-intensity factors, in terms of the crack-opening volumes. Based on the solution of the direct problem, a solution to the inverse problem is proposed, which can be used to predict quantitatively the stress intensity factors for an anticipated static stress state.
