An elastic bimaterial cylinder under anti-plane shear

JN Nnadi


This analysis of the stress distribution in an elastic bimaterial cylinder reveals
that the stresses are nonsingular along the interface if the prescribed shear stresses remain finite. The stresses jrz (r,), = 0, ±, j = 1, 2 in the radial direction will varnish if the material becomes homogeneous and the loads self equilibrating. The stresses in the angular direction, jz (r,), = 0, ±, j = 1, 2 which tend to tear the interface are also not singular if the loads remain finite but varnish if the loads are equal.
