Abstract: The problem of bent cracks of finite length in an orthotropic plate subject to an arbitrary longitudinal shear is studied with the help of Mellin transforms. The case of constant shear stress is considered in detail. The final results of this paper are obtained in closed form, and the expressions for stress intensity factors and crack energy are obtained. The numerical results for stress intensity factors are given in tabular form.
