Abstract

We present the boundary integral equations incorporating the Green's function for anisotropic solids containing planar interfaces. The fundamental displacement and traction solution are determined from the displacement Green's function of Tewary, Wagoner, and Hirth [Journal of Materials Research, Vol. 4, p.l 13-123]. The fundamental solutions are shown to numerically degenerate to the Kelvin solution in the isotropic limit. The boundary integral equations are formulated with the use of constant boundary elements. The constant boundary elements allows for analytic evaluation of the boundary integrals. We demonstrate the application of the method by analyzing a portion of a copper- nickel multilayer system subjected to mechanical loading. 1. Introduction
