In this paper the authors present several applications of finite element dynamic analysis to two-dimensional fracture mechanics problems. The finite element method for the dynamic analysis possesses the same advantages as for the static case, i.e. the feasibility to cope with complex geometries and material compositions. The first example presented concerns the dynamic stress and strain analysis for elastoplastic plates with geometrical singularities using superposition techniques. In the second example, the dynamic propagation of a two-dimensional crack is analyzed numerically with the simultaneous use of the finite element dynamic analysis and the consideration of energy balance of the system.
