A review of recent progress in three-dimensional boundary-integral equation fracture mechanics analysis is presented. New results are discussed concerning the use of special crack tip elements in boundary-integral equation analysis. A formulation is presented for the extension of boundary-integral equation analysis to materials with inhomogeneous material properties and to transient thermoelastic problems. Author
