In this paper, the anti-plane stress analysis in an infinite elastic plane with multiple cracks is carried out by using the distributed dislocation technique. The solution is obtained for an infinite plane containing the screw dislocation via Fourier transform of biharmonic equation for the analysis of infinite plane in gradient elasticity. These solutions are used to perform integral equations for an infinite plane weakened by multiple straight cracks. Integral equations are hypersingular type which are solved numerically for density of dislocation on the cracks surfaces. The numerical method in Chebyshev series form are used to solve the hypersingular integral equations. The solution of integral equations leads to dislocation density functions. The stress intensity factor for cracks tips are formulated in terms of density of dislocation. Employing the definition of dislocation density, stress intensity factors for cracks tips are calculated. The influence of size-effect and crack location on the stress intensity factors are studied. To confirm the validity of formulations, numerical values of stress intensity factors are compared with the results in the literature. The results of the present approach are in excellent agreement with those in the literature. Some new examples with different geometrics of cracks are solved to illustrate the applicability of procedure.
