Mathematical modeling of thermoelastic state in a tree-component piecewise-homogeneous plate containing a crack

 Purpose. A two-dimensional mathematical model of the problem of thermoelasticity for three-component plate containing a crack has been built. The stress intensity coefficients in the vertices of the crack increase affecting strength of the body significantly. This leads to the growth of a crack and, as a result, to further local destruction of a material. Therefore, such a model reflects, to some extent, the destruction mechanism of the elements of engineering structures with cracks.
