We consider a 3D elastic body with a rigid inclusion and a crack located at the boundary of the inclusion. It is assumed that non-penetration conditions are imposed at the crack faces which do not allow the opposite crack faces to penetrate each other. We analyze the variational formulation of the problem and provide shape and topology sensitivity analysis of the solution.
