    Abstract The fracture analysis of cracked thick plates repaired with adhesively bonded composite patches using a boundary element formulation is presented. The shear deformable cracked isotropic plate was modeled using the dual boundary method. In order to model the repair, a three parameter boundary element formulation was established. This formulation is based on Kirchhoff's theory for symmetric layer composite plates and considers the transversal deflection and two in-plane rotations. Interaction forces and moments between the cracked plate and the composite repair were modeled as distributed loading, and discretized using continuous and semi-discontinuous domain cells. Coupling equations, based on kinematic compatibility and… More >
