Abstract

An analysis of the scattering of horizontally polarized shear wave by a semi-infinite crack running with uniform velocity along the interface of two dissimilar semi-infinite elastic media has been carried out. The mixed boundary value problem has been solved completely by the Wiener-Hopf technique. The effect of different values of the material parameter, the angle of incidence of incident wave and the crack propagation velocity on the stress intensity factor have been illustrated graphically.
