Abstract : The problem of a Griffith crack in a thin plate, which is opened by a parabolic pressure acting on its surfaces is considered. The crack is then partially closed in a symmetric manner by ties, idealized by point loads in the material, and the effect upon the stress intensity factors is discussed. (Author)
