A simple Galerkin boundary element method for three-dimensional crack problems in functionally graded materials

Abstract

This paper presents a Galerkin boundary element method for solving crack problems governed by potential theory in nonhomogeneous media. In the simple boundary element method, the nonhomogeneous problem is reduced to a homogeneous problem using variable transformation. Cracks in heat conduction problem in functionally graded materials are investigated. The… (More)
