Vanishing divergence of Eshelby's energy momentum tensor allows formulation of path or domain independent integral expresssions of the crack extension force. In this work, a decomposition scheme of this tensor is presented, which results in zero divergence decomposed parts that allow formulation of expressions yielding the Mode I, II and III crack tip parameters J and K, with particular emphasis on Mode III, at present. By using the Mode III decomposed part of Eshelby's tensor and the virtual crack extension method, a path and a domain independent integral, both new, for the crack extension force of a plane cirular crack in axi-symmetric Mode III loading, are derived as examples of applicatioin.
