In this study the mode III axisymmetric crack problem for two dissimilar homogeneous materials bonded through a thin layer of nonhomogeneous interfacial region is considered. The shear modulus of the interfacial layer is assumed to be μ2 (z) = μ1 exp (αz). It is also assumed that μ3 = μ1 exp (αh), h being the thickness of the layer and μ1 and μ3 the shear moduli of the adherents. The main results of the study are the stress intensity factors, the strain energy release rates and, to a limited extent, the crack-opening displacements obtained as functions of the two primary variables h/a and μ3 /μ1 under various loading conditions, where a is the radius of the crack. Some results are also presented for a penny-shaped crack in an unbounded nonhomogeneous medium.
