3D modelling of an ellliptical crack in ANSYS

I am a beginner in FEM and just started using ANSYS.  I need to study the stresses and SIF at the crack front of an elliptical crack inside a material subjected to a stress perpendicular to the crack plane.  Any details on how I should build my model?  

What is the easiest way to define a cracked area, and crack front and then mesh it

How can i merge together a cracked area and an unmeshed area? 

I found a lot of links and articles that states they did it, but none explained the procedure do do it. 

 

Thanks
