Abstract

The paper deals with the development of a numerical method for determining Weight Functions in two-dimensional problems. After a short review of some recent numerical techniques an original approach is presented. The method is based on Finite Element calculations with coarse meshes and on the knowledge of some values of the Stress Intensity Factor for one reference loading condition. The validity of the method is demonstrated for a theoretical case and its accuracy and suitability are discussed with reference to practical applications.
