Stress intensity factors in plane bodies weakened by crack-type defects

Yurii Kuharchuk, Georgii Sulym
A technique of approximation of stress intensity factors in a plane body weakened by crack-type defects with the use of direct numerical methods is presented. Efficiency of the invented technique is shown in the case of an unlimited layer with a boundary crack solved by the boundary element method.
Keywords: stress intensity factor; crack; elastic body
