The displacement fields for deformation theory, power law plasticity are found from the Shih strain fields for the mixed mode case. These are needed to extend the McClintock and Slocum model to the more realistic case where the shear band is of finite width and the crack progresses to the tensile side of the shear band. The displacement fields should be useful in many other applications as well.
