Abstract

The problem of determination of the crack resistance of an elastoplastic plate, weakened by a rectilinear slit in the form of a cut, under the conditions of uniaxial stretching is considered. The material of the body is assumed to be incompressible, reinforcing, and obeying the Mises condition of plasticity. The straining theory of plasticity is used. The solutions are obtained in the elastic and plastic regions in the form of asymptotic expansions in the neighborhood of the end of the crack. Based on the conditions that the crack borders are unloaded and the elastic and plastic solutions are conjugate on the contour of the plastic region, unknown constants of integration are found. The two-leafed contours of the plastic region are obtained. The critical load is determined.
