# On the Stress Distribution at the Base of a Stationary Crack

@inproceedings{Williams1956OnTS, title={On the Stress Distribution at the Base of a Stationary Crack}, author={M. L. Williams}, year={1956} }

In an earlier paper it was suggested that a knowledge of
the elastic-stress variation in the neighborhood of an
angular corner of an infinite plate would perhaps be of
value in analyzing the stress distribution at the base of a
V-notch. As a part of a more general study, the specific
case of a zero-angle notch, or crack, was carried out to
supplement results obtained by other investigators. This
paper includes remarks upon the antisymmetric, as well
as symmetric, stress distribution…
