Abstract

The singular integral equations method is applied to the two-dimensional contact problem of an elastic half-plane with a surface crack and the opening behaviour of the surface crack is investigated. As the surface cracks, a straight crack and a curved crack are considered. In this analysis, the crack is replaced with the continuous array of edge dislocations and the boundary condition on the crack surface is reduced into a set of singular int
