Abstract

This paper considers the elasto-static axisymmetric problem for a thick-walled spherical shell containing a circumferential edge crack on the outer surface. Using the standard integral transform technique, the problem is formulated in terms of a singular integral equation of the first kind which has a generalized Cauchy kernel as the dominant part. As an example the axisymmetric load problem has been solved. The integral equation is solved numerically and the influences of the geometrical configurations on the stress intensity factors and crack opening displacements are shown graphically in detail.
