Abstract : The purpose of the paper is to investigate the nature of the stress singularities associated with a crack inclined to a bimaterial interface. Emphasis is placed on the stress singularities since it was precisely the order of singularity in the homogeneous material that led to the definitions of stress intensity factors and fracture toughness.
