In this paper, the stress intensity factor KI for the crack front line a − ε(1 + cosmθ), which is slightly perturbed from a complete circular line with a radius of a, is determined. The method used in this study is based upon the perturbation technique developed by Rice for solving the elastic field of a crack whose front slightly deviates from some reference geometry. It is finally shown that the solution for the stress intensity factor matches the results of a three-dimensional finite element analysis.
