A magneto-elastic analysis is presented for the bending problem of a magnetically saturated flat plate of finite width with a through crack under a uniform magnetic field. The Fourier transform method is used to solve the magneto-elastic problem and the result is expressed in terms of an integro-differential equation for the deflection. The integro-differential equation is solved by the standard iteration method and the mixed boundary value problem is reduced to the solution of a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. Numerical values on the moment intensity factor are obtained and the results are graphed to display the influence of the magnetic field.
