Abstract
In the direct formulation of the boundary element method (BEM), a volume integral arises in the resulting integral equation if thermal effects are present. The steps to transform this volume integral into boundary ones in an exact analytical manner are reviewed in this paper for two- dimensional anisotropic thermoelasticity. The general applicability of the BEM algorithm for fracture mechanics applications is demonstrated by three crack problems with slanted cracks. The numerical results of the stress intensity factors are presented and compared with those obtained using superposition.
