In the present article, the plane thermoelasticity problem of an infinite orthotropic cracked plate, is studied. The interaction between thermal and mechanical field, in a plate containing a crack and a heat source is investigated. The plate is submitted to normal stresses at infinity, where a heat flow is also activated. Applying the complex potentials method and the technique of Cauchy integrals, a system of singular integral equations is obtained. These equations, allow the determination of the temperature’s distribution, but also of the stress state at any point of the medium.
