A closed-form solution is obtained for the interfacial edge crack between two bonded dissimilar orthotropic strips loaded by antiplane point loading in form of screw dislocation or line force. Conformal mapping and existing dislocation solutions are utilized for constructing the fundamental solution of the problem. The stress intensity factor (SIF) and the energy release rate(ERR) are obtained explicitly.
