Abstract

This paper considers the elastostatic torsion problem for a thick-walled spherical shell containing an internal or external circumferential edge crack. 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 is shown graphically in detail.
