Two elastic plane strain problems relevant to the cracking of protective layers bonded to dissimilar semi-infinite substrate materials are solved. In the first case a crack initiated at the free surface of the layer and propagating within the film is considered and the influence of its original orientation on cracking mode of the layer is studied. The second problem is that of the crack in the layer oriented perpendicularly to the layer/substrate interface and its influence on a debonding of the layer/substrate system is analysed. In both cases the influence of elastic mismatch of both components on the crack behaviour is discussed. The results provide the details making it possible to solve practical problems connected with damage of bodies with protective layers.
