This study builds upon some recent results in the literature regarding the asymptotic behavior of bimaterial interface cracks, and gives the general form, both oscillatory and nonoscillatory, of the crack-tip stress and displacement fields for stationary and steadily growing interface cracks in anisotropic bimaterials, which are equivalent to complete Williams-type series expansions. Special cases, such as cracks in homogeneous anisotropic materials and interface cracks with decoupled antiplane shear and in-plane deformations, are discussed briefly. Explicit series expansions of the stress and displacement fields in crack-tip polar coordinates are derived for both stationary and steadily propagating interface cracks in isotropic bimaterials.
