Based on the integral equation for the resultant forces along a crack, a numerical method is developed for the solution of two dimensional kinked crack problems taking crack contact into account. The method is demonstrated by a consideration of an elastic half-plane containing a piece-wise straight line crack. Two numerical examples are presented and compared to finite element calculations. The numerical results indicate that the present method can be an effective and reliable tool for investigations of kinked crack problems associated with crack contact.
