Abstract

This paper deals with the interaction of interface cracks and arbitrarily arranged internal cracks in bonded dissimilar materials. The problem is analyzed using the singular integral equations based on the body force method. In the numerical analysis, the unknown functions of the body force densities are approximated by the products of the fundamental density functions and power series. Here, the fundamental density functions are the exact body force densities to express a single interface crack and a
