The influence of strong magnetic field on stress intensity factor of an interface crack is studied in this paper. The nonlinear piezomagnetic property and magnetostriction effect have been taken into consideration in the theoretical analyses. This multi-field coupled problem is solved through a sequential coupling approach. The perturbed magnetization caused by the deformation around the crack is solved under magnetic boundary conditions. After modified by the perturbed magnetization, the initial loads are updated with magnetic forces for iterative calculation. With this strategy, the distributions of the stress and displacement at the crack region approach to the real solution gradually. Numerical results show that the influence of the external magnetic field on fracture behaviors is not ignorable. For structures with interface crack serving in a strong magnetic field, e.g., the multi-layer welded structures in the Tokamak device, the magneto-elastic coupling effects have to be considered to deal with its fracture problem.
