Abstract

In this paper, a new shape-free multi-node singular hybrid stress-function (HSF) element and a shape-free 8-node plane HSF element proposed recently are employed to simulate the quasi-static 2D crack propagation problem. Compared with other well-known methods, such new scheme exhibits four advantage...
