Abstract

The quasistatic crack propagation problem in a plane region with inhomogeneities under thermal loads is investigated. The thermoelastic problem is formulated in terms of singular integral equations which are treated numerically by an appropriate boundary element method. Several examples are discussed. They illustrate the applicability of the solution procedure.
