  • Abstract : Going beyond the scope of solely mechanical considerations, fracture mechanics of smart dielectrics is additionally concerned with the implications of electric fields on crack tip loading. In this work, the oftentimes neglected electric body and surface forces as well as body couples stemming from the Maxwell stress tensor are studied in the context of a crack in an infinite electrostrictive dielectric by exploiting holomorphic potentials and Cauchy's integral formulae within the framework of complex analysis.
