Abstract

An efficient numerical tool based on the hypersingular formulation of the Boundary Element Method (BEM) for the analysis of different crack face boundary conditions in 2D magnetoelectroelastic media is presented. A new algorithm for the resolution of multiple semipermeable cracks is derived and implemented. The accuracy of the proposed formulation is confirmed by comparison with analytical solutions available in literature. The new results presented in this work may be of interest for the understanding of magnetoelectroelastic cracked solids behavior and the consequent improvements in the design and maintenance of novel devices.
