It is assumed that there is a prefracture zone at the crack tip. The plane stress case is considered. The boundary problem is stated in terms of the displacement vector components. It is done using the tensor-linear governing equations which connect the stress tensor components and the strain tensor components and constitutive equations which state the dependence of components of the stress vector at the opposite points on the boundary of prefracture zone on the components of the displacement vector for these points relative to each other. The boundary problem solution is obtained numerically by replacing the partial derivatives with the corresponding finite differences. The supplementary stress method which was proposed in the earlier works by the authors of this paper is used to solve the problem. The results obtained show an influence of the longitudinal tensile loading on the normal components of the strain tensor and the normal components of the stress tensor at the points on the prefracture zone boundary. In particular, it is determined that the longitudinal tensile loading substantially affects the normal components of the stress tensor at the points that initially were at the crack tip. Keywords: crack of normal separation, nonlinear elastic orthotropic body, prefracture zone
