A new crack model which enables us to evaluate crack parameters such as crack energy density and its distribution, COD and COA under arbitrary load history is proposed and the availability of the proposed model is demonstrated through finite element analyses of elasto-plastic crack. The contents are as follows ; (1) A crack model considering the discontinuity in the cracked plane is introduced and the constitutive equation for a plane with discontinuity is formulated on as elasto-plastic case. (2) The finite element formulation of the model is carried out by introducing a plane element. (3) An elasto-plastic crack expressed by the proposed model under monotonic loading is analyzed by finite element method and the availability of the model is verified through the evaluation of crack energy density.
