  • Step-by-step tutorial for application of Boundary Integral Equation Method in mechanics
  • Includes methodology for numerical modeling of dynamic Fracture Mechanics problems
  • Test and benchmark examples, validated numerical schemes and algorithms for creating scientific software
  • Provides good mathematical basis for derivation of fundamental solutions for coupled problems of modern multifunctional materials

Dynamic Fracture of Piezoelectric Materials focuses on the Boundary Integral Equation Method as an efficient computational tool. The presentation of the theoretical basis of piezoelectricity is followed by sections on fundamental solutions and the numerical realization of the boundary value problems. Two major parts of the book are devoted to the solution of problems in homogeneous and inhomogeneous solids. The book includes contributions on coupled electro-mechanical models,computational methods, its validation and the simulation results, which reveal different effects useful for engineering design and practice. The book is self-contained and well-illustrated, and it serves as a graduate-level textbook or as extra reading material for students and researchers.
