A boundary element formulation to deal with fracture
mechanics problems can be obtained with the implementation of
the associated Green's function acting as the fundamental
The range of applications of this formulation is
dependent on the availability of the appropriate Green's
function for actual crack geometry.
Analytical Green' s functions
have been presented for a few single crack configurations in 2-D
applications and require complex variable theory.
work extends the applicability of the formulation through the
introduction of efficient numerical means of computing the
Green's function components for single or multiple crack
problems, of general geometry.
Also, the approach uses real
variables only and well established...
