In this investigation, a conservative integral based on the Betti reciprocal principle is presented. It may be used to obtain stress intensity factors for a bimaterial notch (see Figure 1) in which the body is subjected to a thermal load. The bonded materials are linear elastic, isotropic and homogeneous. According to the linear theory of elasticity, stresses in the neighborhood of the notch tip are generally singular as a result of the mismatch of the elastic constants. A problem which has applications for the micro-electronics industry is considered here.
