By applying the extended version of Stroh's formalism and a special technique of analytical continuation, a general solution for the thermoelastic collinear interface cracks between dissimilar anisotropic media has been obtained in this paper. Special notification and examples are given for the application of the final results to the whole field solutions of the temperature, heat flux, displacements and stresses. The explicit expressions for the interface stresses and crack opening displacements are also provided. Based upon this general solution, two special examples of single crack problems are solved explicitly. One is homogeneous media, the other is anisotropic bimaterials. The former is studied for the purpose of presenting the detailed calculation, verifying the general solution and discussing the validity of the solution. A closed form solution is obtained for the latter case subjected to a uniform heat flux and loading.
