Abstract : Stress intensity factors for single edge cracks in square sheets with prescribed linearly varying end displacements are investigated. The stress distribution around the crack tip is reduced to the solution of a Riemann-Hilbert problem. Numerical results are presented for several crack lengths in a square sheet. (Author)
