Abstract

The path-independent mutual- or M-integral for the computation of the T-stress for interface cracks lying between dissimilar anisotropic, linear elastic solids is developed in this paper. For the numerical stress analysis, the Boundary Element Method (BEM) is employed and special crack-tip elements with the proper oscillatory traction singularity are used. The successful implementation of the scheme for evaluating the T-stress of an interface crack between anisotropic bi-materials with BEM is demonstrated by numerical examples.
