For the two-dimensional problem of elastodynamic diffraction of waves by a crack of finite width, we assume that the solution corresponding to incidence of a plane wave of either longitudinal or transverse motions under a fixed angle of incidence is known. We first show how to construct the solution corresponding to an in-plane line-load (the Green’s function) from this known solution. We then give a simple relation between the far field scattering patterns corresponding to a plane wave incident under any angle and the far field scattering patterns corresponding to the known solution. This relation is a generalization of the principle of reciprocity.
