Abstract
The optical method of reflected caustics was applied up-to-now to various elastic problems containing singularities and especially to problems with cracked plates from isotropic materials. In this paper the influence of the stress-assisted diffusion is studied. Around the crack tip a core-region is developed by the stress-assisted diffusion. This core-region is a strongly brittle area which depends on the sum of the principal stresses at the crack tip and on phenomenological coefficients. So, this core-region influences the initial curve of the caustic and consiquently the shape and size of the caustic. Also, the effect of line - plastic zones developed ahead of crack tip in orthotropic plates on the shape and size of reflected caustics is discussed.
