The problem of singular stresses in an infinite elastic solid containing a spherical cavity and a flat annular crack subjected to axial tension is considered. By application of an integral transform method and the theory of triple integral equations the problem is reduced to that of solving a singular integral equation of the first kind. The singular integral equation is solved numerically, and the influence of the spherical cavity upon the stress intensity factor and the influence of the annular crack upon the maximum stress at the surface of the spherical cavity are shown graphically in detail.
