m.The yield stress is 324
MPa and the ultimate tensile strength is 469 MPa.Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio are,73 GPa
and 0.33 respectively.
Figure 1:Problem 1
1.If the panel width (W) is 60mm and the crack length,a,is 20mm,estimate the critical stress at
the crack initiation.What is the critical stress (
c
) as fraction of the ultimate stress.
2.If the design stress is 20% of the ultimate stress,estimate the critical crack length (a
c
) the panel
can tolerate?
Problem 2
Consider a center crack of length (2a) in a large plate made up of linearly elastic material subject to

Problem 3
Consider a crack of length 2a that makes an angle  with the y-axis in an innite plane subject to far
eld stresses  and  along the y and x directions as shown.Derive the expressions for the singular
stress components.
