1991 (English)In: International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, ISSN 0029-5981, E-ISSN 1097-0207, Vol. 31, no 3, 427-446 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A numerical method is presented for the solution of two dimensional crack problems including the effects of crack kinks and frictional contact between crack faces. The method is based on an integral equation for the resultant forces along a crack. Coulomb friction between contacting crack surfaces is taken into account. The numerical implementation is demonstrated by considerations of surface and sub-surface piece-wise straight line cracks in a half-plane. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the efficiency and the reliability of the presented method.
