Abstract

The theory of linear elastic fracture mechanic (LEFM) has proven that we can evaluate the amount of stress located at the crack tip by determining the stressintensity factor (K). The stress at the tip of a sharp crack has the highest stress which can lead to failure on the material. Thus, the cracks within human bones are quite complicated because of the bone microstructure. There are a few factors that can minimize the effect of the cracks so that patients can heal much faster. Hence, this paper focuses on how several crack distances, between two parallel edge cracks can affect the value of stress intensity factor (K). Using the LEFM theory, the interaction between two neighboring crack tips was investigated.
