In this paper, three-dimensional Green’s functions in anisotropic elastic bimaterials with imperfect interface conditions are derived based on the extended Stroh formalism and the Mindlin’s superposition method. Four different interface models are considered: perfect-bond, smooth-bond, dislocation-like, and force-like. While the first one is for a perfect interface, other three models are for imperfect ones. By introducing certain modified eigenmatrices, it is shown that the bimaterial Green’s functions for the three imperfect interface conditions have mathematically similar concise expressions as those for the perfect-bond interface. That is, the physical-domain bimaterial Green’s functions can be obtained as a sum of a homogeneous full-space Green’s function in an explicit form and a complementary part in terms of simple line-integrals over [0,π] suitable for standard numerical integration. Furthermore, the corresponding two-dimensional bimaterial Green’s functions have been also derived analytically for the three imperfect interface conditions. Based on the bimaterial Green’s functions, the effects of different interface conditions on the displacement and stress fields are discussed. It is shown that only the complementary part of the solution contributes to the difference of the displacement and stress fields due to different interface conditions. Numerical examples are given for the Green’s functions in the bimaterials made of two anisotropic half-spaces. It is observed that different interface conditions can produce substantially different results for some Green’s stress components in the vicinity of the interface, which should be of great interest to the design of interface. Finally, we remark that these bimaterial Green’s functions can be implemented into the boundary integral formulation for the analysis of layered structures where imperfect bond may exist.
