The thermoelastic problem of an infinite elastic plane containing a partly bonded circular inhomogeneity of different thermomechanical properties is considered. Based upon the solution of a perfectly bonded inhomogeneity established in the current work, the complex stress intensity factor of the interfacial crack problem is obtained for full heat-conductive conditions of an “open” crack and for a linear temperature change at infinity.
