A complete set of Comninou’s bimaterial interface crack-tip fields with and without friction in the contact zone (Comninou, 1977a,b) is given in terms of several arbitrary analytic functions. When the bimaterial becomes homogeneous, the complex function representation fully describes the crack-tip field for a cracked body under conditions of crack surface contact and slip, which can occur when the body is subjected to combined compression and shear loadings.
