A numerical approach to an infinite sequence of collinear cracks is presented in this paper. Numerical examples are included to illustrate the accuracy of the numerical approach. Specifically, an infinite sequence of collinear cracks subjected to concentrated loads is analyzed using the numerical approach. Many numerical results of the stress intensity factors (SIFs) are given. In addition, an experiential formula to calculate the SIFs of the infinite sequence of collinear cracks is presented. Numerical examples show that the experiential formula has very high accuracy.
