Stress intensity factors of corner cracks at the bore of a rotating disk are estimated from the stress intensity factor of a quarter-elliptical crack in a quarter infinite solid and pressurized by the hoop stress. Curvature effect of the bore is incorporated through a curvature correction factor derived from the stress intensity factors of a single edge-cracked bore in a large plate and a single edge-cracked semi-infinite plate. Stress intensity factors for quarter-elliptical cracks with crack aspect ratios of b/a = 0.2, 0.4, and 0.98 at crack depths of b/Ri = 0.1, 0.3 and 1.0 in a rotating disk with R0/Ri = 8 are determined. Application of the developed procedure to corner crack problems at a through-bolt hole is indicated.
