Abstract : A new implementation of the boundary-integral technique for two-dimensional elasticity problems is developed. The new approach uses linear variation of boundary tractions and displacements over straight line boundary segments. A significant improvement in the numerical accuracy of the boundary-integral technique is demonstrated. (Author)
