Abstract: Closed-form solutions for the transient dynamic problems of a suddenly applied anti-plane concentrated force and concentrated impulse near a crack are obtained. The various wave signals comprising the solutions are identified, and their behavior noted. The concentrated force solution is then employed as a Green's function to solve the important problem of arbitrary screw dislocation motion near a crack edge.
