Computational modeling of strong discontinuities is a challenging a task. Stress analysis and shape sensitivity can be done with any simulation method such as finite element method, finite difference method, Rayleigh-Ritz method, weighted residual method or least square method. All these numerical analysis methods are computationally expensive and uneconomical. Mesh dependency with respect to fracture boundary is a major problem in these methods. Furthermore accuracy of the methods depends on the size of the discretized element.
