The study is devoted to the problem for a linear crack located between two dissimilar elastic half-spaces under normally incident time-harmonic plane shear wave. The system of boundary integral equations for displacements and tractions is derived from the dynamic Somigliana identity. The distributions of the displacements and tractions at the bonding interface and the surface of the crack are analysed. The dynamic stress intensity factors (the opening and the transverse shear modes) are computed as functions of the frequency of the incident wave for different material properties.
