Abstract

The paper considers the elastostatic axisymmetric problem for a thick-walled spherical shell containing a circumferential edge crack on the inner surface. The ring-shaped edge crack and the inner surface of the spherical shell are subjected to internal pressure. Using an integral transform technique we obtain a singular integral equation of the first kind which has a generalized Cauchy kernel as the dominant part. The integral equation is solved numerically, and the influence of the geometrical configuration on the stress-intensity factor and the crack-opening displacement is shown graphically in detail.
