This paper provides a summary of recent studies concerning numerical modeling of dynamic crack-propagation, Both "stationary mesh" as well as "moving mesh" finite-element procedures are examined. Simple procedures, using a moving mesh of conventional isoparametric elements in conjunction with certain path-independent integrals for the evaluation of stress-intensity factors for a dynamically propagating crack are presented.
