A dynamic stress-intensity factor and energy release rate are obtained for a running semi-infinite crack traversing a strip of elastic material subjected to out-of-plane bending. It is shown that the maximum ratio of crack tip velocity to shear wave velocity is identical to the maximum ratio of flexural wave velocity to shear wave velocity in the limit of vanishingly small wavelength. The dynamic stress-intensity factor is written as the product of a static stress-intensity factor multiplied by a function of Poisson’s ratio and crack tip velocity the function decreasing monotonically with increasing crock tip velocity. The energy release rate is shown to be independent of crack tip velocity for this type of problem.
