Timoshenko inclusions in elastic bodies crossing an external boundary at zero angle
The paper concerns an analysis of equilibrium problems for 2D elastic bodies with a thin Timoshenko inclusion crossing an external boundary at zero angle. The inclusion is assumed to be delaminated, thus forming a crack between the inclusion and the body. We consider elastic inclusions as well as rigid inclusions. To prevent a mutual penetration between the crack faces, inequality type boundary conditions are imposed at the crack faces. Theorems of existence and uniqueness are established. Passages to limits are investigated as a rigidity parameter of the elastic inclusion going to infinity.
