Semi-infinite moving crack between two bonded dissimilar isotropic strips

The problem of a moving semi-infinite crack between two bonded dissimilar isotropic strips has been considered. The mixed boundary value problem has been reduced to a standard Wiener–Hopf equation by the use of Fourier transform technique. The Wiener–Hopf equation has been solved in asymptotic cases to obtain the required expressions of the stress intensity factor and crack opening displacement. The effects of various parameters on the stress intensity factor and crack opening displacement have been shown by virtue of the graphs.
