The problem of a semi-infinite work-hardening material with a finite length asymmetric edge crack subjected to uniform remote longitudinal shear is solved exactly by the use of hodograph transformation and the Wiener-Hopf technique. The material behavior is governed by a pure power-hardening stress-strain relation and for monotone loading the results are valid for both deformation and flow theories of plasticity. Numerical values are obtained for the path independent J integral for several values of both the angle of asymmetry and the power-hardening exponent.
