Abstract
The paper discusses further applications of the hyper-singular boundary integral equation to obtain the Green's function solution to general geometry fracture mechanics problems, such as curved multifracture crack simulation, static and transient dynamic in 2-D, 3-D and plate bending problems. This numerical Green's function (NGF) is implemented into alternative boundary element computer programs, as the fundamental solution, to enhance the scope of alternative applications of the NGF procedure.
The results to some typical linear fracture mechanics problems are presented.
