Abstract : The stress intensity factor for a thick-walled cylindrical section with a straight, radial crack has been obtained by a modified boundary collocation method. The results obtained by this method by this method are in good agreement with previously obtained experimental results. The application of this method to other component configurations can give an accurate K-califration. (Author)
