Singularities interacting with interfaces incorporating surface elasticity under plane strain deformations

Xu Wang, Peter Schiavone

We consider problems involving singularities such as point force, point moment, edge dislocation and a circular Eshelby's inclusion in isotropic bimaterials in the presence of an interface incorporating surface/interface elasticity under plane strain deformations and derive elementary solutions in terms of exponential integrals. The surface mechanics is incorporated using a version of the continuum-based surface/interface model of Gurtin and Murdoch. The results indicate that the stresses in the two half-planes are dependent on two interface parameters.
