Murthy, MVV and Bapu Rao, MN (1988) Three-Dimensional stress problem of a finite thick plate with a through crack under tension.13;. International Journal of Solids and Structures, 24 (7). pp. 693-703.Full text not available from this repository.
The three dimensional state of stress in a finite thick rectangular plate with a through-crack under tension is investigated. It is found that the in-plane stresses and the transverse normal stress are singular while the transverse shear stresses are of the order of unity. The only type of singularity encountered is that of inverse square root all through the plate thickness including the corner points at the plate faces. The stress intensity factor which is found to vary with Z and the thickness ratio h/ alpha drops rapidly in a thin boundary layer near the plate faces, but without actually vanishing there.
