On an Arbitrarily Oriented Crack in a Transversely-isotropic Medium
- 104 Downloads
Transversely-isotropic material with an arbitrarily oriented penny-shaped crack is considered. We calculate fourth-rank compliance contribution tensor of the crack and second-rank crack opening displacement tensor and examine their dependence on crack orientation. It is shown that this dependence for the crack opening displacement tensor is negligible if transverse isotropy has elliptic character, i.e. if material symmetry can be described in terms of a certain second rank tensor.
