int_defects usage and validation examples



This dataset contains results of parametric finite element studies of structures containing crack-like flaws. All of the examples were created using the int_defects toolbox for MATLAB, which was designed for automating parametric finite element of this type. This toolbox and these associated examples are described in the following article:
