An expression is developed for the stress intensity factor of a penny-shaped crack in an infinite elastic solid subjected to nonaxisymmetric normal loading. The stress intensity factor can then be determined for penny-shaped cracks in infinite or finite solids subjected to symmetric loading about the plane containing the crack. The singular state associated with the embedded crack with finite, nonaxisymmetric normal loading is that of plane strain. Results are also presented for two problems: A penny-shaped crack subjected to two symmetrically located concentrated forces and a penny-shaped crack in a large beam subjected to pure bending.
