An interior Griffith crack opened by a heated wedge in an infinite strip whose edges are parallel to the crack axis. (English) Zbl 0821.73050
Exact expressions for the stress intensity factors and the crack shape are obtained under plane strain conditions by use of the Fourier transform technique. The formulated problem is reduced to a Fredholm integral equation of the second type, whose solution is obtained by the method of approximation. Two special cases of heat distribution and known wedge shape functions are discussed.
