Within the framework of the cohesion model, the solution of the problem of calculating the parameters of the pre-fracture zone in a joining material at the end of an interfacial crack propagating from the corner point of the broken interface of the two different homogeneous isotropic materials is obtained. The zone is modeled by the discontinuity line of displacements, on which the stresses meet the Mises—Hill strength criterion. By the Mellin integral transformation, the problem is reduced to the Wiener—Hopf vector equation. An approximate method of solution of the Wiener—Hopf vector equation is proposed. The method is based on the representation of the matrix coefficient of the equation in the form of a sum of two matrices, one of which allows for an exact factorization, while the other one is considered as a small perturbation to the first one. The solution of the equation is searched in the form of expansions by the degrees of a matrix-perturbation. From the found solution, the equations for calculating the pre-fracture zone length and the phase angle of stress in the zone, and the expression for the crack opening at the tip are obtained.
