In this paper, the effect of the lattice parameter of functionally graded materials on the dynamic stress fields near crack tips subjected to the harmonic anti-plane shear waves is investigated by means of non-local theory. By use of the Fourier transform, the problem can be solved with the help of a pair of dual integral equations, in which the unknown variable is the displacement on the crack surfaces. To solve the dual integral equations, the displacement on the crack surfaces is expanded in a series of Jacobi polynomials. Unlike the classical elasticity solutions, it is found that no stress singularities are present near crack tips. The non-local elastic solution yields a finite hoop stress at the crack tip, thus allowing us to use the maximum stress as a fracture criterion in functionally graded materials.
