Reduction of free-edge stress intensities in anisotropic bimaterials


We investigate the free-edge stresses in anisotropic bimaterials through the use of the free-edge stress intensity factor, Kf . This requires a determination of the singularity order at the free-surface as well as a calculation of the near-field stresses. We determine the order of the singularity for arbitrary free-surface orientation of the upper material… (More)
