The general problem is reduced to the solution of a Fredholm-type integral equation with a weakly singular kernel and, alternatively, to that of a singular integral equation. The stress state in the vicinity of the plate ends is examined and it is shown that the stresses have an inverse square root singularity in both elastic as well as inextensible cover plates. The main results of the paper consist of the demonstration of the effect of interaction on the stress intensity factors in the case of more than one cover plate.
