2D Test Cases in Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics

This report describes finite element work on the development of 2-D test cases for linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) benchmarks. The emphasis is on the mathematical and numerical correctness of solutions rather than the comparison of various element formulations. Therefore the test cases employ representative element types available in most finite element systems. The work includes well corroborated target solutions for all test cases and comparisons are made in relative terms to the referenced solutions.
