Multiple Crack Problems in Elasticity
Multiple Crack Problems in Elasticity. Z. Chen, N. Hasebe, and K.Y. Lee. Computational Mechanics Inc., 25 Bridge St., Billerica, MA 01821, distributor for WIT Press, Southampton, U.K. 356 pages. 2003. ISBN 1-85312-903-8. $206.
In Volume 4 of WIT Press’s Advances in Damage Mechanics Series, the authors investigate various integral equations for multiple crack problems in plane elasticity. Formulation of the problems is based on relevant elementary solutions in which the complex variable function method is used. The multiple crack problem is considered as a superposition of many single crack problems, while many more complicated cases, including bonded dissimilar materials and multiple thermally insulated cracked problems, are covered. A CD-ROM containing solutions is also included.
