Attention is here focused on the implementation of a coupled BEM–FEM procedure employing the BE method for the modelling of the near-crack region and the FEM for the far-field, where no singularities in the stress field are expected to arise. The symmetric variational version of the BE method is utilized, allowing to obtain a final linear system endowed with a symmetric matrix. With respect to 3D linear elastic fracture mechanics, the code developed is used to evaluate stress intensity factors for some benchmarks and simulate fracture propagation.
