Abstract:

The central themes of the project was the theoretical as opposed to experimental study of the fracture of brittle elastic solids. The purely numerical approach based upon the direct solution of the partial differential equations using the adaptations of the 3-d Hemp Code led to the initiation of a multipurposecode for the simulation of wave propagation in anisotropic media. The boundary value problems for which, in principle, a solution with a desired degree of accuracy can be calculated or computed were considered. The results of these studies are summarized in this report. Author
