Abstract :
The extended finite element method is applied on the two-dimensional (2-D) finite piezoelectric media weakened by a crack. The fourfold standard enrichment functions are taken in conjugation with the interaction integral to evaluate the intensity factors. Four sequence of analysis, namely crack–mesh alignment, aspect ratio, mesh with local refinement and domain independency is done on the center and edge crack problems. These four analyses when combined together give an optimum result to study the finite specimen. It is observed that for smaller values of strip width to crack length ratio the finiteness of the specimen size affects the intensity factors.
