Stress intensity factor (SIF) solutions for subsurface flaws near the free surface in plates were numerically investigated based on the finite element analyses. The flaws with aspect ratios a/ℓ = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5, the normalized ratios a/d = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 and d/t = 0.01 and 0.1 were taken into account, where a is the half flaw depth, ℓ is the flaw length, d is the distance from the center of the subsurface flaw to the nearest free surface and t is the wall thickness. Fourth-order polynomial stress distributions in the thickness direction were considered. Based on the results, it can be concluded that the numerical SIF solutions obtained in this study are useful in engineering applications.
