Degenerate orthotropic materials in the Stroh formalism for steady state problems

Xu Wang and Peter Schiavone

Vol. 16 (2021), No. 4, 441–449

A complex variable formulation is developed for the in-plane steady state motion of degenerate orthotropic materials. The in-plane stresses, displacements and stress functions can be expressed concisely in terms of two analytic functions of a single complex variable. Using this formulation, we derive explicit expressions representing the asymptotic stresses and displacements for a crack running at a constant speed in a degenerate orthotropic material, and obtain the Green’s functions for a degenerate orthotropic plane or half-plane subjected to a uniformly moving in-plane line force and/or edge dislocation.
