dc.description.abstractIn this report, we develop a computational procedure to investigate propagation of 3D cracks in isotropic linearly elastic media in a 2D framework. We reduce the 3D weakly singular, weak-form traction integral equation to its 2D analog by introducing a constraint on crack profile in out-of-plane direction. Symmetric Galerkin boundary element method based on the obtained 2D weak-form traction integral equation is adopted to model these fractures. In particular, we consider multiple interacting cracks in unbounded domain subject to internal pressure to model hydraulic fracture.en
