The transient response of a finite bimaterial plate with a crack perpendicular to and terminating at the interface is analyzed for two types of boundaries (free-free and clamped-clamped). The crack surface is loaded by arbitrary time-dependent antiplane shear impact. The mixed initial-boundary value problem is reduced to a singular integral equation of a generalized Cauchy kernel for the crack tearing displacement density or screw dislocation density. The Gauss-Jacobi quadrature technique is employed to numerically solve the singular integral equation, and then the dynamic stress intensity factors are determined by implementing a numerical inversion of the Laplace transform. As an example, numerical calculations are carried out for a cracked bimaterial plate composed of aluminum (material I) and epoxy or steel (material II). The effects of material properties, geometry, and boundary types on the variations of dynamic stress intensity factors are discussed in detail. Results indicate that an overshoot of the normalized stress intensity factor of the crack tip at the interface decreases for a cracked bimaterial plate, and the occurrence of which is delayed for a cracked aluminum/epoxy plate compared to a pure aluminum plate with the same crack.
