The plane elasticity problem is considered for an infinite strip containing arbitrarily arranged cracks. The method of solution involves representing cracks by continuous distributions of dislocations, and results in a system of singular integral equations. The geometry and other parameters may be arbitrarily specified, including the number, locations, angles, and lengths of the cracks as well as the loading parameters. The problem of a semi-infinite strip is solved by letting one of the cracks cut the strip through. Stress intensity factors are presented for various geometries and loadings.
