The problem of a crack in a general anisotropic material under conditions of linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) is examined. In Part I, three methods were presented for calculating stress intensity factors for various anisotropic materials in which z = 0 is a symmetry plane and the crack front is along the z-axis. These included displacement extrapolation, the M-integral and the separated J-integrals.
s study, general material anisotropy is considered in which the material and crack coordinates may be at arbitrary angles. A three-dimensional treatment is required for this situation in which there may be two or three modes present. A three-dimensional M-integral is extended to obtain stress intensity factors. It is applied to several test problems, in which excellent results are obtained. Results are obtained for a Brazilian disk specimen made of isotropic and cubic material. Two examples for the latter are examined with material coordinates rotated with respect to the crack axes.
