Abstract

In this study the elastostatic axisymmetric problem for a long thick-walled transversely anisotropic cylinder containing a ring-shaped internal crack is analyzed. The problem is reduced to a singular integral equation which has a simple Cauchy kernel as the dominant part by using Hankel and Fourier transform techniques. These equations are then solved numerically and the stress intensity factors are calculated.
