The purpose of this paper is to investigate the time behavior of a multiple crack problems. It is assumed that the medium contains cracks perpendicular to the crack surfaces, that the thermo-mechanical properties are continuous functions of the thickness coordinate. we use the laminated composite plate model to simulate the material non-homogeneity. By utilizing the Laplace transform and Fourier transform techniques, the multiple crack problems in the non-homogeneous medium is formulated. Singular integral equations are derived and solved to investigate the multiple crack problems. As a numerical illustration, transient thermal stress intensity factors(TSIFs) for a functionally graded material plate subjected to sudden heating on its boundary are provided. The variation in the TSIFs due to the change in material gradient and the crack position is studied.
