Abstract: We show that it is possible, for a certain case of a traveling crack problem, to obtain an explicit solution, in the entire region of interest, in terms of elementary functions. This affords a simple way of constructing level stress curves in the entire region, in contrast with the general case when simple expressions are obtainable at best along a particular axis.
