Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

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.
