AbstractA self-consistent estimate for a power-law creeping matrix with aligned penny-shaped cracks is presented. The analysis focuses on both finite element implementations and a closed-form linearized solution. The latter is shown to be an accurate result for a sensible range of arguments; therefore we present the answer in a simple form.
