Cracks at mechanical fastener holes usually nucleate as elliptical comer cracks at the faying surface of the mechanical joints and grow as elliptical arc through cracks. The weight function method for elliptical arc through cracks at mechanical fastener holes has been developed and verified in the part I of this study. In part H, applying the weight function method, the effects of the amount of clearance on the mixed-mode stress intensity (actors are investigated and the change of crack shape is predicted from the analysis for various crack shapes. The stress intensity factors leer inclined crack are analyzed and critical angle at which mode I stress intensity factor becomes maximum is determined.
