Spectral formulation of the boundary integral equation method for antiplane problems

Spectral formulation of the boundary integral equation method for antiplane problems

Kunnath Ranjith

Abstract

A spectral formulation of the boundary integral equation method for antiplane problems is presented. The boundary integral equation method relates the slip and the shear stress at an interface between two half-planes. It involves evaluating a space-time convolution of the shear stress or the slip at the interface. In the spectral formulation, the convolution with respect to the spatial coordinate is performed in the spectral domain. This leads to greater numerical efficiency. Prior work on the spectral formulation of the boundary integral equation method has performed the elastodynamic convolution of the slip at the interface. In the present work, the convolution is performed of the shear stress at the interface. The spectral formulation is developed both for an interface between identical solids and for a bi-material interface. It is validated by numerically calculating the response of the interface to harmonic and to impulsive disturbances and comparing with known analytical solutions. To illustrate use of the method, dynamic slip rupture propagation with a slip-weakening friction law is simulated.
