The method of fundamental solutions for layered elastic materials. (English) Zbl 1008.74081
Summary: We investigate the application of the method of fundamental solutions to two-dimensional elasticity problems for isotropic and anisotropic single materials and bimaterials. A domain decomposition technique is employed in the bimaterial case where the interface continuity conditions are approximated in the same manner as boundary conditions. The method is tested on several test problems, and its relative merits and disadvantages are discussed.
