• The behaviors of an interface crack between dissimilar orthotropic elastic half-planes subjected to uniform tension was reworked by use of the Schmidt method.By use of the Fourier transform,the problem can be solved with the help of two pairs of dual integral equations,of which the unknown variables are the jumps of the displacements across the crack surfaces.Numerical examples are provided for the stress intensity factors of the cracks.Contrary to the previous solution of the interface crack,it is found that the stress singularity of the present interface crack solution is of the same nature as that for the ordinary crack in homogeneous materials.When the materials from the two half planes are the same,an exact solution can be otained.
