In a convenient hardcover format this extensive source of crack stress analysis has been brought up–to–date with the addition of 150 new pages of analysis and information. The book is an excellent reference, as well as a text for in–house training courses, in various industrial and academic settings.


  • Introductory Information: Crack–tip stress fields for linear–elastics bodies
  • Alternate expressions for crack–tip elastic fields
  • Energy rate analysis of crack extension
  • Stress analysis results for common test specimen configurations: The center cracked test specimen
  • The single edge notch test specimen
  • Other common specimen configurations
  • Two–dimensional stress solutions for various configurations with cracks: A finite crack in an infinite plane
  • A periodic array of cracks in an infinite plane
  • Opposing parallel semi–infinite cracks in an infinite plane
  • A semi–infinite crack parallel to edges of an infinite strip
  • Three–dimensional cracked configurations: An embedded circular crack in an infinite body
  • A half–circular surface crack in a semi–infinite body
  • Strip yield model solutions: Three–dimensional strip yielding solutions
  • A circumferential crack in a cylindrical shell
