Boundary Element Analysis of Three-Dimensional Interface Cracks in a Transversely Isotropic Bimaterial Using the Energy Domain Integral

Nicolás O. Larrosa, Jhonny E. Ortiz, Adrián P. Cisilinoz


A general multidomain boundary element analysis of the thee-dimensional interface crack problem for dissimilar transversely isotropic materials is presented in the present publication. The Energy Domain Integral (EDI) methodology is used to compute the J-integral. Different examples are
solved to demonstrate the capability of the method. Some of them are benchmark examples that were used to validate the BEM code and the other ones are examples that are considered interesting by the authors for their technological application.
