Dynamic stress intensity factors for an interfacial crack between two dissimilar elastic, fully anisotropic media are studied. The mathematical problem is reduced to three coupled singular integral equations. Using Jacobi polynomials, solutions to the singular integral equations are obtained numerically. The orders of stress singularity and stress intensity factors of an interfacial crack in a (θ(1)(2)) composite solid agree well with the finite element solutions.
