Following the dynamic theory of linear piezoelectricity, we consider the scattering of horizontally polarized shear waves by a finite crack in a composite laminate containing a piezoelectric layer. The piezoelectric layer is bonded between two half-spaces of a different elastic solid. The crack is normal to the interfaces and is placed at an equal distance away from them. Both cases of a partially broken layer and a completely broken layer are studied. Fourier transforms are used to reduce the problem to the solution of a pair of dual integral equations. The solution of the dual integral equations is then expressed in terms of a singular integral equation. The propagation of symmetric first mode is studied numerically, and the dynamic stress intensity factor and the dynamic energy release rate are obtained for some piezoelectric laminates.
