The equations of elasticity are solved for the problem of a flat elliptical crack which has nonuniform shear stresses applied to its surfaces. The shear stresses are prescribed independently in two directions on the crack surface and are expressed in the form of a third-degree polynomial. Mode two and mode three stress-intensity factors are presented in analytical and graphical form as functions of position along the crack border.
