THE DISTRIBUTION OF STRESS NEAR THE TIP OF A RADIAL CRACK AT THE EDGE OF A CIRCULAR HOLE

The problem of determining the distribution of stress near the tip of a crack which originates at the edge of a circular hole in an infinite elastic solid is examined. A Mellin transform technique is used to find an integral equation which is related to the stress intensity factor and the formation energy of a crack at the edge of the circular hole. The biaxial loading case is considered in detail and numerical results are given.
