The top wall contains a crack parallel to the x-axis. The crack length is 0.02m (i.e., a = 0.01m). Assume that the material is brittle and that modes I and II have the same toughness value of 5MPa√m. If the box beam has already been subjected to a torque T = 100kNm, estimate the maximum additional axial force N by using the mixed mode fracture criterion....
