An isogeometric SGBEM for crack problems of magneto-electro-elastic materials

Han Duc Tran, Binh Huy Nguyen


The isogeometric symmetric Galerkin boundary element method is applied for the analysis of crack problems in two-dimensional magneto-electro-elastic domains. In this method, the field variables of the governing integral equations as well as the geometry of the problems are approximated using non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) basis functions. The key advantage of this method is that the isogeometric analysis and boundary element method deal only with the boundary of the domain. To verify the accuracy of the proposed method, numerical examples for crack problems in infinite and finite domains are examined. It is observed that the computed generalized stress intensity factors obtained by the proposed method agree well with the exact solutions and other references.
