The published traditional crack problem solutions usually consider cracks located in the planes, parallel to the plane of isotropy, which is usually denoted as z = 0. We consider here case of a crack located in the plane x = 0 and subjected to arbitrary normal or tangential loading. The case of elliptic crack is considered in detail. Complete solution for the fields of displacements and stresses is presented single contour integrals of elementary integrands. Stress intensity factors are computed explicitly. © 2011 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
