In this section we discuss an application of the new FM-BIEM to
three-dimensional elastostatic crack problems, using techniques obtained
in sections 3.3 and 4.1. As far as we know,
applications of the new FMM to three-dimensional elastostatics are not
found in literature. Indeed, an application of the new FMM to
three-dimensional elastostatics is mentioned in Fu et al.[19] but
they present only an integral representation for the fundamental
solution of anisotropic elastostatics without FMM formulation or
numerical examples.
The material in this section is from Yoshida et al.[89]
