The problem of a plane crack in an anisotropic layered material under the action of impact loading is considered in this paper. The problem is reduced in the Laplace transform domain to a set of simultaneous Fredholm integral equations of the second kind. Once these integral equations are solved, the crack tip stress intensity factors in the Laplace transform domain may be readily calculated. The dynamic stress intensity factors can then be obtained through the use of a numerical technique for inverting Laplace transforms. Numerical results are given for specific examples involving particular transversely isotropic materials.
