It is noteworthy to mention at this stage that no previous investigations have been presented deriving explicit expressions for the deformed field components, or their angular variations near the tip of a crack, within a stack of nonuniformly loaded parallel cracks, even in hexagonal piezoelectric crystals or purely isotropic elastic, nor even when the loads are uniform.
