This paper is to determine vibrational eigensolutions m2, vm(r)]m = 1 of a three-dimensional, finite, linear, elastic solid C containing cracks in terms of crack configuration σc and eigensolutions n2, un(r)n = 1 of a perfect elastic solid P without the cracks. Use of Betti reciprocal theorem and the Green’s function of P expands vm(r) in terms of an infinite series of un(r). Substitution of the vm(r) series representation into the Kamke quotient of C and stationarity of the quotient result in a Fredholm integral equation whose nontrivial solutions predict λm2, and vm(r) of C . Finally, natural frequencies and mode shapes of a circular shaft of finite length containing a circumferential crack under torsional vibration are predicted through a two-term Ritz approximation of the Fredholm integral equation. The results differ significantly from those predicted by the method of flexibility matrices, when the ratio of the shaft length to the shaft radius is small.
