Infinite Periodic Array of Cracks in Axisymmetric Disking

In axisymmetric disking, a periodic array of identical notches is placed on the surface of a brittle, cylindrical rod which is then encased in an elastic, annular sheath. Biaxial fluid pressure is applied to the composite and at a critical pressure cracks run across the diametral section of the rod...
