The distribution of stress in the neighborhood of a Griffith crack located asymmetrically in an infinitely long elastic strip is considered. It is assumed that the edges of the strip are stress free and that the crack is opened by an internal pressure varying along its length. Expressions are derived for the stress intensity factor, the shape of the deformed crack, and the crack energy.
