Complete, accurate numerical results are given for the solution to the problem of a semi-infinite crack aligned perpendicularly to the free-edge of a semi-infinite half space in which the ligament is subject to arbitrary combinations of bending and tension or compression. The material is an incompressible, pure power-law deformation theory solid. Conditions of plane strain are assumed. Approximate solutions are proposed for predominantly bending loadings and also for predominantly stretching loadings.
