Equilibrium Problem for a Timoshenko Plate with an Oblique Crack

N. P. Lazarev
Keywords: plate, crack, cut, nonpenetration condition, variational problem


The condition of mutual nonpenetration of the crack faces is proposed for a Timoshenko plate with an oblique crack, whose initial state is defined by a surface the normal to which makes a small angle with the middle plane. Unique solvability of the variational problem of plate equilibrium with the nonpenetration conditions for the crack faces specified on the curve describing the crack is proved. A differential formulation of the problem equivalent to the original formulation for sufficiently smooth solutions is proposed. For the one-dimensional case (beam with a cut), an analytical solution is obtained, and the cases of longitudinal tension and compression are examined.
