Boundary Element Analysis of Viscoelastic Fracture
In this paper, the boundary element analysis of viscoelastic strain energy release rate ) (t G for the cracked linear viscoelastic solids has been attempted. The ) (t G has been defined as the derivative of the viscoelastic potential energy ) (t P with respect to crack length a . Numerical results show the applicability of the proposed method to the analysis of the cracked linear viscoelastic structures.
