Figure 2, the evolution of the crack half-length, in the published paper misrepresents the solution of Bunger et al. (Ref. [26] in the published paper) owing to wrong coordinate origin. The corrected Fig. 2 is given below.

From Fig. 2, the current analysis (blue-solid line) and the result of Bunger et al. (green-dashed line) nearly coincide with each other as τ ≪ 1, and both are in agreement with the numerical result from Hu and Garagash (red triangle). When τ is close to 1, the solution of the current analysis is slightly larger than the result of Hu and Garagash. It should also be emphasized that the sentence in the first paragraph of “Discussion” section in the published paper “In addition, the proposed model provides a better estimation (less difference between the asymptotic solution and the numerical calculation) for fracture half-length compared to...
