A system of boundary integral equations that allows evaluating the displacement and stress fields for an interfacial crack under harmonic loading is presented. Expressions for the integral kernels are obtained. A numerical solution for a penny-shaped crack between steel and aluminum half-spaces under normally incident compression-rarefaction wave is given.
