Abstract

This paper deals with numerical solutions of singular integral equations in interaction problems of diamond-shaped inclusions with angular corners under various loading conditions. The problems are formulated as a system of singular integral equations with Cauchy-type or logarithmic-type singularities, where the unknown functions are the densities of body forces distributed in infinite plates having the same elastic constants of the matrix and inclusions. In order to analyze the problems accurately, the unknown functions of the body force densities are expressed as a linear combination of two types of fundamental density functions and power series, where th
