The edge function method: An efficient new numerical technique in rock mechanics

J. F. Dwyer, B. Amadei

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The edge function method for anisotropic elasticity is presented. Analytical solutions model field behavior in critical parts of the domain of interest. Boundary conditions are matched using a variational principle. Accurate results are obtained for a range of rock mechanics problems involving gravity forces, cavities, cracks and singular loadings.
