Document Type: Journal Paper


This paper illustrates the writers approach for the static plane-strain case of a thin cylindrical shell with any number N of long, part-through axial cracks spaced equally around the circumference of the cylinder. The application to cases involving dynamic and other effects, while more complicated, entails the same principles.
