Crack problems for three-dimensional elastostatics

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]
