Brebbia, C. A. (ed.) et al., Boundary elements. XXI. Papers from the 21st international conference on the boundary element method, Oxford, Great Britain, August 1999. Southampton: WIT Press. Int. Ser. Adv. Bound. Elem. 6, 355-364 (1999).
Summary: We present criteria and an associated numerical method for determining the location of a plane crack. We use spherical incident waves and measure the scattered field on some specified set of points. The numerical method for the plane crack identification uses a boundary-finite element method for the computation of direct problem. The behaviour of these numerical methods is analysed in several cases, and simulations are presented.
