On a Possible Approximation of Changes in Elastic Properties of a Transversely Isotropic Material due to an Arbitrarily Oriented Crack

The present paper addresses an approximate analytical model for contribution of an arbitrarily oriented circular crack into effective elastic compliance of a transversely isotropic material. We numerically examine the bounds of applicability of the hypothesis that change in elastic potential due to...
