The paper deals with classical problem for cracks dislocated in a certain very specific porous elastic material, described by a Cowin-Nunziato model. We propose a method based upon a reducing of stress concentration problem for cracks to some integral equations. By applying Fourier integral transforms the problem is reduced to some integral equations. For the plane-strain problem we operate with a direct numerical treatment of a hypersingular integral equation. In the axially symmetric case… CONTINUE READING
