Abstract

The stress singularities at the tip of a crack that terminates at a frictional interface between two layers in anisotropic composites are investigated. The order of stress singularities is determined by solving the characteristic equations obtained from the boundary conditions and the frictional interface conditions for the cases concerned. The interface is assumed to be governed by Coulomb's law of friction. Numerical results are presented for the cases with a crack terminating at a frictional interface of a fibre reinforced composite, and it is shown that there is a big difference of stress singularities between cases with and without considering friction along the interface.
