For remotely loaded cracks in isotropic elastic solids, the energy flux into the crack tip vanishes as the crack speed increases to the Rayleigh wave speed of the material, see [1]. However, theoretical and numerical studies dating back to the mid 1970’s, e.g. Andrews [2], Burridge et al. [3] and Broberg [4, 5], have indicated that faster crack speeds should be possible under shear loading conditions.
