A symmetric boundary integral formulation for cohesive interface problems. (English) Zbl 1038.74668
Summary: An incremental symmetric boundary integral formulation for the problem of many domains connected by non-linear cohesive interfaces is here presented. The problem of domains with traction-free cracks and/or rigid connections are particular instances of the proposed cohesive formulation. The numerical approximation of the considered problem is achieved by the symmetric Galerkin boundary element method.
