Crack Problems and Boundary Variational Inequalities

  • David Natroshvili


Signorini contact problems as well as crack problems have been extensively studied for homogeneous elastic bodies (see [1], [2], [3] and the references therein). The main tool to investigate these problems is the theory of spatial variational inequalities.
