Abstract

The problem of a kinked crack which has initiated from the tip of a rigid line inclusion is analyzed as a mixed boudary value problem. The stress distribution, stress intensity factors, singularity at the inclusion tip, and the resultant moment on the rigid line inclusion are investigated for various angles of the kinked crack and crack lengths. The rotation of the rigid line inclusion, when loaded by a uniform farfield stress, is calculated. The cases in which the inclusion is free to rotate or is fixed are separately considered.
