Abstract The quasi-static growth of an anti-plane shear crack in a periodically nonhomogeneous elastic material is considered. An effective velocity dependent energy release rate is found for a semi-infinite crack. Approximate expressions of stress intensity factors for in-plane cracks in periodically nonhomogeneous material are also given.
