The problem is reduced to a system of two singular integral equations for determining the interface slope and shear stress. The dominant part of the system is analyzed to determine the order of the stress singularly and its dependence on the elastic constants. The equations are then solved numerically for several chosen composites, and the interface slope and traction are exhibited graphically. The solution should be relevant in studying adhesive joints by means of the simple tension test.
