## Abstract

Consider a crack propagating in a plane according to a loading that results in anti-plane shear deformation. We show here that if the crack path consists of two straight segments making an angle psi not equal 0 at their junction, examples can be provided for which the value of the stress-intensity factor (SIF) actually depends on the previous history of the motion. This is in sharp contrast with the rectilinear case (corresponding to psi = 0), where the SIF is known to have a local character, its value depending only on the position and velocity of the crack tip at any given time.
