The problem of a circular elastic inclusion bonded to a different elastic material except over an arc crack is considered. It is found that the solution yields an oscillation phenomenon near the ends of the crack of a form found previously by several authors, indicating that linear elasticity may not be used to predict the stresses and displacements in these regions.
