Greens Functions for Boundary Element Analysis of Anisotropic Bimaterials



J R. Berger, Vinod K. Tewary


We present several region-dependent Green's functions for anisotropic bimaterials in two-dimensional elasticity and steady-state heat transfer problems. The details of the various Green's functions for perfect, slipping, and cracked interfaces are given for mechanical loading conditions. We also give the steady-state Green's function for thermal loading of a bimaterial with a perfectly bonded interface. The Green's functions are incorporated in boundary integral formulations and method of fundamental solutions formulations for analysis of finite solids under general boundary conditions.
