Abstract : To develop a new method of analysis of many cracks problems in elastic solids that is sufficiently simple and applicable to both two- and three dimensional configurations, and to apply it to a number of practically important problems involving multiple cracking. Such methods has been developed and its accuracy was verified by checking the results against the solutions available in the literature. The new method has been applied to solving a number of problems. Keywords: Stress analysis, Elastic solids, Crack problems, Multiple cracking.
