Abstract

A new conformal mapping is devised to transform the contour of a circular arc crack into a unit circle. By this mapping, the interaction between both tips of the crack is studied, which exhibits different characteristics from those of a pair of collinear cracks. The solution has the particular feature that without any limiting process, it can be continuously reduced to the particular case of the straight crack problem simply by setting a mapping variable equal to zero.
